Chemical Burns and Negligence
One of the most important steps to take after suffering a chemical burn is to seek immediate medical treatment. Medical treatment for chemical burns can be expensive and may require recovery time that keeps you from returning to work immediately. If you or your loved one sustained chemical burns as a result of suspected negligence on part of a third party such as an employer, an attorney may be able to help you pursue a financial settlement that can help offset the associated costs.
Compensation for Chemical Burns
Depending on the particular substance involved, chemical burns have the potential to cause substantial and potentially lasting damage to a person’s skin. If you or a loved one sustained chemical burns and you suspect that a negligent party may have contributed to the accident, you may be able to pursue legal action in order to recover the following financial damages:
- Lost income
- Cost of medical treatment/rehabilitation
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Do not hesitate to consult with an attorney if you or a loved one has sustained chemical burns because of someone else’s actions or inaction.
