When a burn injury is suffered at work, the employee may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation is insurance which provides employees who were injured on the job with medical benefits and replacement of lost wages. In exchange for these benefits, the employee forfeits their right to sue their employer. Because insurance companies will try to deny benefits entirely, workers who have suffered a burn injury on the job should speak with an attorney immediately to discuss their legal rights and options.
