Chemical burns can occur when in the workplace when workers are exposed to corrosive substances such as acids, solvents, bases and oxidizers. Chemical burns are one of the most painful types of injuries that exist. When serious damage has been done to the skin, the victim may then have to undergo endless surgeries and grafts in an effort to repair the damage.

If you believe that you may be suffering from a chemical burn due to the negligence of an employer, business owner or defective product, it is important for you to contact an attorney today. In many cases, the damage from chemical burns may not fully manifest for some time. It is important to seek immediate medical care if you believe you're suffering from a chemical burn or exposure.

Some of the most common symptoms of chemical burns include:

  • Severe pain
  • Rashes
  • Blisters
  • Blue or red areas of skin

The financial and emotional burdens that can accompany serious workplace injuries can include hospital bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and a loss of earning capability. Worker's compensation is often not enough coverage to pay for the actual costs that you may incur for your injury.
