Burns and scarring may lead to compensation claim

Burns and scarring suffered in an accident could result in a man pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation.

According to the Daily Post, professionals from three depots of the North Wales Fire Service - Colwyn Bay, Llandudno and Llanfairechan - attended the scene in the coastal town of Llandudno in order to tackle the blaze.

As a result of his injuries, the man was taken by ambulance to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd, a hospital based near Rhyl and managed by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

A spokesman for the local ambulance service noted that medical professionals at the institution had to treat the man for "life threatening" burns, meaning he may be entitled to seek compensation for his ordeal once an investigation has established the cause of the fire.

Meanwhile, an official from the fire service stated: "Firefighters used breathing apparatus to get into the building and bring the man out."
