Many workers have an increased risk of on the job burn injuries, including food service workers, electricians, repair technicians and welders. While some on the job burn injuries are minor and can be treated with simple first aid, second and third degree burns are more serious and require extensive medical care. Many burns must be treated at a specialized burn center, and can significantly threaten the health of the victim. Severe burns can cause:
- Psychological trauma
- Decreased immunity
On the job burn injuries can usually be filed with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. However, many employers will attempt to make the burn injury appear as though it was the employee’s fault and do whatever they can to try to get out of paying for worker’s comp. If you have been burned while at work, you need to consult with an experienced worker’s compensation attorney to secure your right to the full and fair restitution you deserve.
