Work-Related Burn Injuries
Burn injuries require immediate first aid attention and often a visit to
the emergency room. Work-related burn injuries can vary in severity and
complexity, as well as cause. A severe burn injury may require several
surgeries, multiple doctor visits, antibiotics, topical medications, and
time away from work. You deserve to receive care and compensation for
