Poisoning and Burns Compensation

Suffering from the effects of poisoning or from a burn injury varies in both type and severity – but can be traumatic because of the physical and emotional pain caused.

Fortunately most burn injuries are minor and will heal naturally and the majority of poisoning incidents result in short-term illness without serious complications. However, in extreme personal injury cases, poisoning and burns inflict a great deal of distress.
If you’ve been the victim of poisoning from a source that wasn’t your fault or a burn injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for poisoning and burns compensation

Poisoning Claims

When a harmful substance enters the body and poisons the system, through no fault of your own, you should consider making a poisoning claim. Especially if the poisoning resulted in you having to take time off work or spend a few days in hospital, compensation will help ease your suffering as well as recompense you for associated costs and lost earnings.

The most common types of poisoning include:

•    Carbon monoxide poisoning
This highly dangerous gas causes symptoms such as dizziness and vomiting that normally lift when you’re away from the source but it can sometimes cause brain and heart damage and even death in extreme cases. Often, faulty gas appliances or poor ventilation are to blame and in these cases you have a right to make a carbon monoxide poisoning claim for compensation.
•    Food poisoning
Illness caused by food poisoning is usually short-lived but serious cases can lead to nervous system damage and even death. If food from a third party such as a restaurant or pub is responsible for the poisoning, you should make a personal injury claim.
•    Chemical poisoning
This includes lead poisoning or coming into contact with a toxic substance at work. If your employer or someone else’s negligence resulted in your chemical poisoning, you can claim for compensation.

Our solicitors have extensive experience of handling poisoning claims and will ensure the individual details of your case are considered and do everything possible to secure you the compensation you deserve.

Burn Injury Claims

Nearly 8,000 people are admitted to hospital or burn units each year and around 200 of these people will die. Burns are not only caused by heat but can be the result of exposure to the cold, steam, electricity, radiation, chemicals or friction.

Burns can cause a range of physical and psychological injuries, and if you’ve suffered a burn injury because of someone else’s negligence you have a right to claim for compensation.
Depending on how severe your burn injury is, you may have experienced pain alongside physical disfigurement and scarring which can make life difficult to cope with. Compensation will help ensure you receive the medical treatment, including any cosmetic surgery costs that you need as well as compensate you for your suffering.  

If your burn injury was due to negligence on the part of your employer, a manufacturer or someone else, our specialist personal injury solicitors will advise you of your options and support you throughout the claims process. In addition to offering this help for free, on a No Win No Fee basis, we will work hard to make the experience as quick, easy, and stress-free for you as possible.
