What Is A Chemical Burn?
Chemical burns are burns caused by coming in contact with a corrosive substance,
also called caustic burns. These burns can occur anywhere dangerous chemicals
are stored and used, including at school, in the workplace, or in the
household due to dangerous products.
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
What Causes Chemical Burns
Chemical burns can be caused by a variety of substances, such as acids,
drain cleaners, or paint thinners. Sometimes these burns are noticed at
the time they occur while some are not noticed until the burn reveals
itself. This process can take up to a couple hours, similar to a sunburn.
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.
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.
