Serious Injury Claims
If you or a loved one has suffered a fire or burn injury, our expert Serious Injury lawyers can help
Whether the fire starts at home, at work or in a public place, the impact on the people involved will often be life changing. Burns and scolds can be extremely painful and life threatening.
If you or your family have suffered injuries from a fire and wish to make a compensation claim, our team of experts can help by assessing your case and acting for you through the claims process.
To make a successful claim, you’ll need to demonstrate that someone else or an organisation was at fault for the fire, either through their deliberate actions or negligence. They could be an individual, a company, an employer, a landlord, hospital, school, a public building or public transport.
Your specialist injury solicitor will gather evidence to support your claim such as witness statements, fire investigation reports, health and safety reports. They will also gather medical evidence about your injuries and the effect of these on you day to day life. They will also need evidence of your financial losses such as loss of earnings and your treatment costs.
If a claim to the relevant party or insurance company is submitted and liability is accepted, negotiations will begin to agree on a compensation settlement. If an agreement cannot be reached, the case may proceed to court.
It is possible to bring a claim in the civil courts if you are caught up in a fire and there has been negligence on the part of another or a malfunction of a machine or appliance.
If the fire was started deliberately by someone for example because of arson to terrorism, you can make a claim for your injuries and losses through the Criminal Injuries claims route. There are very strict deadlines that apply to every compensation case, so if you feel you have a similar case, please contact us for a confidential discussion about your circumstances.
Claims can be submitted for first, second, third and fourth degree burns caused by someone else’s deliberate actions such as arson to terrorism, or negligence, such as a workplace accident, a fire on public transport or in a hotel or hospital.
These injuries could include:
These burn injuries may also include neurological damage and orthopaedic damage which may impact mobility and dexterity, as well as lung damage from smoke inhalation.
If you or your family have suffered a burn injury and wish to make a compensation claim, you should take the following steps:
Overall, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible to ensure you have the best chance of securing the compensation you are entitled to.
The compensation amount will depend on the severity and extent of the injury and the impact it’s had upon your life, including any medical expenses and loss of income.
