Have you suffered a chemical burn in an accident?
Accidents involving chemical burns often take place when someone comes in direct contact with a chemical or fumes. With the amount of chemicals that are used in the home and at work each and every day, it is no wonder that that large numbers of people suffer from this type of injury. The risk of receiving a chemical burn is much higher in the workplace, especially if you work in an inherently dangerous job such as construction or at a manufacturing plant that uses chemical compounds.
Most chemical burns are caused by either a strong acid or base, involving chemicals such as hydrochloric acid or sodium hydroxide or other similar substances. Acids damage and kill cells by coagulating them, and base chemicals damage cells by liquefying them. People who have suffered from a major chemical burn need to be immediately transferred and admitted to a hospital to ensure that medical care is administered. If you were injured by a chemical burn, call our firm right away so that we can assist you with a claim for compensation.
