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.

Following negations with the defendant, Mr X was offered £250,000 gross of the interim payments of £52,009 to settle the claim. Mr X accepted this offer and was very thankful for our assistance with his claim.
Absolutely amazing service, I had an accident back in 2016 and they fought tooth and nail to get me the treatment and pay out that I deserved, my case handler Amy kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Howells to anyone.
From start to finish my daughter’s medical negligence claim was handled brilliantly. Communication was excellent and her case was handled sensitively and professionally, with a successful outcome at the end.
Excellent service as always, Highly recommended wouldn't use anybody else , always on hand to help and advice . Thank you!!!!!

Sue dealt with my personal injury claim with professionalism at all times. She kept both myself and my son fully informed throughout the process and always responded to queries quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in using this firm again.

Stuart Marks
I recently used Howells' for a claim. After an initial telephone conversation, Amy (our assigned representative) went through the process of our potential claim. She outlined time frames and the strength of our case. We ended up receiving compensation above our expectations. I was thoroughly impressed the team from Howells and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. They handled the whole process in a manner which inspired confidence, knowing that we were in good hands.

Simon Marks
Howells have been fantastic when dealing with my claim and i would recommend them to anyone. I would like to thank Sue for her outstanding service and patience throughout my case. You were great and I cannot thank you enough for the end result. Also thank you to Glendora and Amy for all your help. 5* service all round

Gavin Herbert
Life changing issues affected our daughter due to a misdiagnosis and then catalogue of errors. We are so grateful to Sue and the team and the lovely Glendora! Thank you so much for all your hard work, perseverance and pure doggedness. Hopefully this has saved another family from having to go through this! Amazing service from such nice people! Enjoy the hamper!


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 £30,000.00 for the emotional trauma and future rehabilitation needs.
