What other questions do you have about making a claim for burns or electrocution injuries in the workplace?

Burn injury claims can encompass various burn types, including thermal (heat-related), chemical, electrical, and radiation burns. Regardless of the source, if negligence is involved, compensation might be possible.

Yes. If an electrocution or burn injury is caused by a malfunctioning product, you might have a claim against the manufacturer or distributor. Product liability claims ensure that companies are held accountable for releasing unsafe products. A lawyer can guide you through the process.

Yes. In Brisbane, there’s generally a three-year period from the date of the incident to lodge an electrocution/burn injury claim. Some exceptions may apply, so it’s vital to consult legal advice promptly to ensure you operate within the relevant timeframe.

You have 6 months from the date of injury or the date of diagnosis of injury as work related by a medical professional, to make a statutory claim with WorkCover. However, our experience is that the longer you wait, the more likely it is WorkCover will question your claim. We strongly recommend you make a WorkCover claim as soon as possible, even if the injury seems minor.

To maximise your claim:

  • Document the scene and any involved equipment or substances.
  • Gather witness details and statements.
  • Seek immediate medical care, ensuring you retain all related records.
  • Engage with a lawyer who specialises in electrocution or burn injury claims for guidance.

The amount of compensation depends on factors such as the severity of the injury, medical expenses, potential future care costs, lost earnings, and quality of life impacts. Each case is unique. Consultation with a lawyer can provide a more tailored estimate.

The duration can vary. Factors affecting the timeline include the claim’s complexity, severity of injuries, and clarity of liability. While some claims might be resolved within months, others may take longer. Your lawyer can provide a more precise estimate based on your circumstances.

The types of damages you can recover, include:

  • General damages – for pain and suffering;
  • Past and future loss of wages;
  • Loss of superannuation;
  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Other past and future out of pocket expenses;
  • The cost of past and future care; and
  • Legal costs.

We know it can be overwhelming to know which firm to trust with your road accident claim, there’s a lot of us out there! We also know it can sound a little biased when we tell you to choose Best.

There are a few reasons we think you should choose Best as your Electrocution/Burn Accident Claim lawyers:

  1. We hire the Best people: our team aren’t only some of the sharpest legal minds in Queensland (no really, we win awards for it) but they’re also genuinely good people, who care about their clients. When we say we hire the Best, we mean we hire people who care about every case and every client, people you’d want fighting for you that you’d also happily catch up over a cuppa with.
  2. We will never leave you out of pocket: how so?
    • No Win, No Fee. Forever. You will only be charged if we win your case, so you can rest easy that we will be doing everything we can to put you in a better place than when you started your claim with us.
    • 30% Fee Cap. Some firms take around 50% of your compensation claim, we can at 30% to cover our fees (so even if our fees are more than that, we won’t charge you for it).
    • We cover out-of-pocket expenses. There are necessary expenses that must be incurred to successfully run your claim, because we want you to focus on your recovery and not the cost of your case. We will cover the cost for outlays needed to run your case, and you will only be expected to pay for these if your case is successful (these will be added as a part of your compensation claim, for the insurer to pay for).
  3. We take on cases other firms won’t, and we win them: we have a history of taking on claims other firms won’t, because we’re not afraid of hard work and because we know the difference a successful claim will make to you and your life.
