What are your employer’s responsibilities?

The legal obligation of an employer is to reduce the risks of personal injury to their employees and the public.

An example of some of the safeguarding practices that should be carried out are:

  • Having regular risk assessments
  • Communication of safety measures and potential risks
  • Health and safety training
  • Having necessary insurance for all employees
  • An appointed first aider and first aid equipment
  • Regular breaks during intense work

If the practices above are not implemented or are poorly done and you are injured, your employer could be found negligent, giving you strong grounds for a compensation claim.

What amount of compensation could I receive for burns or scars?

The amount of compensation will depend on the severity of the injury, and the impact it has had on your physical and mental wellbeing will also be factored into your case. Even if there is no physical pain from a scar or a burn, the psychological impact it may have caused could increase the amount of compensation you are likely to receive.
