Chemical Burns

Chemical Burn Injury

Chemical burns often occur in industrial accidents. Our Columbia-area, South Carolina law practice can assist you in filing your claim and help you to recover compensation for which you may be entitled.

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.

If you have experienced chemical burns due to someone else’s negligence, contact our Columbia-area, South Carolina law firm today.
