How chemical burn injuries occur
Chemical burns can be a result of direct skin contact with an acid or base. Examples include ammonia, sulphuric acid and hydrochloric acid. Chemical burns commonly cause injuries to arms, legs, face and in the eyes. In some cases, someone may sustain a lung or throat injury from inhaling a chemical.
An industrial accident or construction accident may cause chemical burn injuries to a worker. For example, a construction worker involved in road project may come into direct contact with liquid concrete products and sustain a serious injury.
Caustic chemicals are used in cleaning products such as drain cleaners, bleach, paint thinner and batteries.
Chemical burn injuries can cause permanent disfigurement, scarring and may affect mobility. In some cases, serious chemical burn injuries can result in death, which may be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
