New Jersey Chemical Burn Injury Lawyer: Chemical Exposure Burns

Chemical burns can occur anywhere, but are most frequently sustained while an individual is at work.  This is particularly true if working for a business or manufacturing plant that uses chemicals in its day to day operations.
Chemical burns can be caused by a variety of substances, but are most often caused by extremely corrosive acids and bases.  Examples of these types of chemical agents include ammonia, hydrochloric acid, and sulphuric acid.  Chemical burns most can affect any exposed area of skin and the severity of the burn will vary depending on how the individual is exposed.  Because many of these dangerous chemical agents let off dangerous fumes, inhalation injuries including burns the airway and lungs are a common occurence.
Even though exposure to chemicals at the workplace is a more frequent occurrence, household items also pose a danger.  Some examples of household products that have been known to cause chemical burns and other chemical exposure issues are:
  • bleach
  • concrete products
  • drain or toilet bowl cleaners
  • metal cleaners
  • pool treatment chemicals
