Burns to the face which reach the eyes can cause eye problems. Blasts of hot air or steam or bursts of flames can seriously injure the face and eyes. Mr B suffered his injuries when a boiler at work exploded leaving him in a huge amount of pain and requiring immediate medical attention.

In cases like Mr B’s there are not only the physical injuries to consider but emotional and financial suffering. Accidents like Mr B’s are often frightening and traumatic causing not only physical scars but mental scars as well. There would usually be a reasonable amount of time off work required for recovery and treatment which means the victim is losing earnings. All of these things are taken into account when compensation is being awarded.

It is also important to note that all employers have a duty to ensure that all equipment is in good working order and that all employees have been trained to use the equipment correctly. They are not only responsible for the safety of their employees but also any visitors such as contractors clients or the general public or anyone who is on their premises.

You are entitled to claim compensation if you can prove that your accident was someone else’s fault. It could be the fault of your employer a fellow employee or even another company which is based at your place of work. As long as there is a clear case of third party negligence you can make a claim

? Contact with dangerous materials
