Burns commonly arise in work injury claims. Electricians, construction workers and other technical workers are at a high risk of burn injuries, but any profession is vulnerable to it. So who are you supposed to turn to when a burn injury makes it impossible to go to work and pay for your medical bills?
Workers' compensation benefits exist to pay for your medical bills and replace a portion of your lost wages when you are injured on the job. If your employer is one of the many required to carry workers' comp in Florida, then you are likely owed these benefits if you were burned while performing your job duties. Experienced attorney Eric Canter can determine if you are owed these benefits and ensure you get every dollar you are due.
It's also possible to pursue a claim against a third party who caused the conditions that led to the burn. For example, if the manufacturer of a defective product you use at work caused your burn, then it may be wise to pursue compensation from them.
Burn injury claims arise from a wide array of circumstances, such as:
- Burns caused by explosions
- Burns caused by uncontrolled flames
- Electrical burns
- Chemical burns
- Burns caused by hot liquids or steam
