Chemical Burn Injuries

Mar 3, 2020 | Burn Injuries

If you have been seriously hurt by a chemical burn you may face exorbitant bills related to initial treatment, rehabilitative therapy to regain function, and ongoing therapy. Chemical burn injuries, in addition to causing excruciating pain, can cause permanent nerve damage and disfigurement. The effects of burn injuries can threaten a person’s earning potential, ability to care for their family, basic motor functions, and financial security. These social and financial effects can be just as damaging in the long term as the burn itself. When a chemical burn victim is injured because of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, the person responsible should be forced to answer for the damage they caused.

Types of Chemical Burn Cases We Handle

Chemical burns can occur in many ways. In some instances, employers may expose their workers to unsafe chemicals or not give them the proper equipment to handle dangerous substances. A property owner may fail to safely warn people on the property of potential exposure. No matter how the injury was sustained, the severity of a burn depends on the burn-inducing substance and the length of time that a victim was exposed to the chemical.

Symptoms of a chemical burn include redness, painful burning sensations, numbness, blackened dead skin, vision changes, blisters surrounding darker skin, trouble breathing, coughing, and vomiting. Both acids and bases can cause chemical burns.

Some materials that most commonly cause chemical burns to include:

  • Acid
  • Ammonia
  • Bleach
  • Chlorine
  • Metal cleaners
