Chemical Burns

Standing Up for the Rights of Injured Workers

When an acid or base chemical comes in contact with the skin or eyes, or the chemical is inhaled, serious life-changing injuries can occur. The burn victim can feel immediate pain, irritation of the skin and headache. In severe chemical burn cases, the victim can experience low blood pressure, cardiac arrest or death. While chemical burns can occur practically anywhere, they most commonly occur in industrial settings such as chemical plants and refineries.

If you have suffered chemical burns in the workplace, you face a potentially long and difficult recovery. In addition to reparative and scar revision surgery, you may require psychological counseling to deal with the emotional effects of your injuries. These types of care are potentially very costly, and the workers’ compensation insurance company may try to terminate your benefits prematurely or make an inadequate lump sum settlement offer.
