Do I Need a Chemical Burn Injury Lawyer?
Chemical burns, in addition to causing excruciating pain, can cause permanent nerve damage and disfigurement. The effects of burn injuries can threaten a person’s earning potential, ability to care for their family, basic motor functions, and financial security. These social and financial effects can be just as damaging in the long term as the burn itself.
Those who put people in harm’s way need to be held accountable, not only for the physical and financial damage that they already caused, but also to ensure that the dangerous behavior that they have engaged in doesn’t continue. By holding negligent people accountable, accident victims help protect other people from being hurt in the future.
Especially if you are considering hiring a lawyer for the first time, taking official legal action doesn’t always seem like the easy option. However, the truth is that a lawyer will listen to your case and help you pursue a satisfactory conclusion. The knowledge and guidance of an attorney can help you recover the financial support you need far more quickly and successfully than trying to pursue a claim alone would.

Types of Chemical Burn Cases We Handle
Chemical burns can occur in many ways. In some instances, employers may expose their workers to unsafe chemicals or not give them the proper equipment to handle dangerous substances. A property owner may fail to safely warn people on the property of potential exposure. No matter how the injury was sustained, the severity of a burn depends on the burn-inducing substance and the length of time that a victim was exposed to the chemical.
Symptoms of a chemical burn include redness, painful burning sensations, numbness, blackened dead skin, vision changes, blisters surrounding darker skin, trouble breathing, coughing, and vomiting. Both acids and bases can cause chemical burns.
Some materials that most commonly cause chemical burns include:
- Metal cleaners
If you are experiencing the symptoms of a chemical burn, Williams Hart can investigate the accident or exposure to identify the liable party, gather the necessary evidence, and negotiate for the compensation you deserve.
