I am sorry to hear this.
Are the burn marks permanent?
You could sue and receive a small settlement based on the fact that you were harmed and have been inconvenienced. But unless there are permanent marks on your face the amount you will receive will be very small.
That is not to say that you should let this go. In fact, sometimes a threat of a lawsuit is enough to make someone offer a settlement. In a case like yours I would actually suggest that your next step be to consult with a lawyer face to face with a view to retaining the lawyer to send this company a letter demanding compensation and threatening a lawsuit. You may very well get a settlement that would be fair.
