Accident at work – Hand injury – Right hand burned and scarred

Accident at work – Hand Injury – Right hand burned and scarred

A school teacher was showing the class an experiment in science class with a bunsen burner.

The bunsen burner was defective and let out an uncontrolled flame.

This resulted in a hand injury in which the claimant suffered severe hand burns on his right hand and will be scarred for life.

The bunsen burners are supposed to be inspected and tested by a technician before they are being used by a teacher/class.

The school is denying liability.
