What Are the Causes of Chemical Burns?
Chemical burns can occur anywhere dangerous chemicals are stored and used,
including at school, in the workplace, or in the household due to dangerous
products. Generally speaking, the severity of a chemical burn will vary
depending on the type of chemical involved, the amount of time it remains
on a person’s skin before being washed away, the concentration of
the acid or base, how much of the dangerous chemical is present in a solution,
the health of the victim’s skin, and whether the chemical is swallowed
or inhaled. While mild irritants can include pain and burning, more serious
burns can cause blisters, numbness, deep tissue injuries, and blackened
and dead skin. Chemicals that are ingested or inhaled may cause a variety
of complications and internal damage, including the possible development
of various types of cancer.
Chemical burns can result from any of the following:
- Workplace accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Using dangerous or defective products
- Dangerous conditions in public places
- Caustic tattoo removal products
- Dermatology errors and surgical negligence
If you believe your chemical burn was caused by another party’s careless
actions, our attorneys can help you investigate the cause of your accident
and pursue legal action against those responsible. Depending on the circumstances,
we may be able to help you recover compensation for your resulting medical
expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and lost earning potential.
Since compensation will vary on a case-by-case basis, it is important
you consult with our firm to review your legal options in detail.
