A burn or scald to the skin can cause serious pain and suffering for the victim. Burns, especially on sensitive skin, can cause significant scarring which could become a life-long issue, which may also lead to further problems.
When you make a claim for suffering a burn or scald which wasn’t your fault, you not only receive financial compensation for your physical trauma and loss of earnings, it also recognizes the long term emotional difficulties you may face.
