Injury Law Central knows that any kind of burn is of great concern. Chemical burns often occur in the context of workplace accidents. Chemical fabrication, mining, medicine, and most commonly auto repair are examples of work environments that are conducive to chemical burn injuries.
Chemical burns can result from contact with acids, strong alkali, and industrial chemicals such as silver nitrate, hydrochloric acid, lye, and lime. Injury Law Central also warns that ordinary products around the house are of concern. Household chemicals such as drain openers and lawn fertilizer are sometimes implicated in chemical burn injury accidents. Thing that people generally never think about, like exposure to dry cement or gasoline, may result in chemical burn injuries.
Chemical burns are very painful. The El Dabe Law Firm knows that many chemical burns victims suffer extensive tissue and systemic damage. Chemical burns are classified, as are other burn injuries, as first, second, or third degree burns. To treat chemical burns, health care professionals recommend immediate irrigation of the burn site with water, to end the exposure of flesh to chemical agents.
