Burn Injuries Suffered on the Job

One of the most agonizing injuries a person may have, is a burn. They frequently cause extensive surgery, rehabilitation, therapy, and secondary symptoms for years to come. Numerous factors affect compensation following a burn injury. You will probably qualify for workers' compensation payments if you suffered a burn at work. Burns frequently lead to long-lasting scars or even deformity. A victim may experience blood loss, tetanus, infections, distress, and in certain circumstances, death if not treated in a timely manner. Burns caused by chemicals and electricity can harm internal organs without causing any visible signs, making them extremely painful.

Two key factors—time and temperature—determine the type of burn that is suffered on a person. Even though a wound may harm your internal organs, the degree of skin damage is frequently utilized to classify these injuries. The degree of categorization may be first degree, second degree, third degree, or fourth degree. A further thing to keep in mind is that burn degrees may occasionally be described as either full- or partial-thickness burns.

Burn injuries are among the many risks that are frequently present at work, and for some employees, they are their top concern. Employers in Florida are obliged to carry workers' compensation insurance for their employees. These insurance plans pay for medical expenses and lost wages following an injury up to the time the person is medically cleared to resume performing their full range of job tasks.

The majority of workplace accidents are covered by workers' compensation if they happened during the normal course of the employee's job, regardless of who was at fault. However, there is one exclusion. You are allowed to bring a burn injury claim if your burn damage was caused by the negligent and reckless behavior of a third person, who is not your employer.
