Definition of Chemical Burns
Chemical burns are injuries that are caused when a strong acid or base comes into direct contact with skin. Chemical burns may be the result of an accident or an assault, and may occur at home, at school, or in the workplace – especially in businesses or manufacturing plants where large amounts of caustic chemicals are used. Mining, medicine, and chemical fabrication are three examples of potentially hazardous industries. Billy Walker and Kirk Morgan have extensive experience with cases involving chemical burns and their effects and are eager to assist you at their Lexington/Columbia, South Carolina practice.
Causes of Chemical Burns
Caustic chemicals are found in cleaning products, battery fluid, pool chemicals, drain cleaners, lime, and fireworks. Many other acids and bases are highly dangerous, and serious injuries are possible. The severity of chemical burns may be deceptive; hydrofluoric acid, for instance, can eat to the bone before the extent of the chemical burn becomes evident.
