Causes of Chemical Burns
Chemical burns are caused by exposure to toxins or dangerous chemicals. In some cases, such exposure may occur over a long period of time. In this case, you may not experience any immediate consequences or side effects. However, this sort of exposure could lead to serious diseases, such as cancer, in the long term.
In other cases, chemical burns may result immediately from acute exposure to dangerous substances. For example, you may breathe in a dangerous or destructive chemical in gas form that causes you to pass out. You may also have physical contact with a chemical in a way that causes chemical burns or other damage to the skin. Whichever sort of injuries you incur, we may be able to help.
Types of Injuries Resulting From Chemical Burns
Chemical burns can vary depending upon how the injury occurred and what type of chemical you were exposed to. Some examples of possible chemical burns include:
- Asbestosis, mesothelioma, lung-cancer or other diseases caused by chemical exposure. If you develop a disease or illness, it can be complicated to prove a link between the exposure and your medical condition. But a chemical burn attorney may be able to help.
- Chemical burns can affect part of the body, including the eyes, ears and skin. Depending upon how serious the chemical burn is, you may experience a number of adverse effects as a result of the chemical exposure. In some cases, chemical burns can cause death.
