Medical Malpractice Burns

Burns often happen by accident and can leave life-long scars. However, sometimes they happen as a result of negligence or malpractice. If this has happened to you, then you may have a claim for a burn injury.

Have You Suffered from Medical Malpractice Burns?

When burns are caused by medical negligence, they may be due to one of the following reasons:
  • Faulty equipment
  • Accident or mistake e.g. placing an item on/near a patient
  • Surgical error
If you have suffered from a burn injury due to medical negligence, you could claim for the expenses incurred for the medical treatment of:
  • Scarring
  • Remedial treatment / Cosmetic surgery
  • Psychological injury and associated counselling
  • Loss of earnings
  • Travel expenses
  • Provision of camouflage make-up
Due consideration is given with burn injuries, as they can be particularly painful and often lead to severe scarring, causing more emotional distress.

Case Study: Personal Injury Claim for a Burn

R v Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

The patient in this matter was chemically burned as a result of a misplaced alcohol-wipe being left within a premature baby’s incubator following a vaccination. Sadly, this resulted in burns to the patient’s leg and life-long scarring.

Compensation is anticipated to exceed £30,000 for the emotional trauma and future rehabilitation needs.
