What Are Chemical Burns?

Chemical burns are burns that are a result of 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 household 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 of cancer.

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.
