Suffered Chemical Burns in the Workplace? Call Us Now!
Burns in the workplace are one of the most prevalent types of injuries, and one of the most devastating for victims. The time for healing and recovery can be extensive, and the negative impact can be felt for quite some time after, particularly if the victim has suffered from scarring or disfigurement.
Because of this, it is critical that you have legal representation for your burn injury case. Berthold Law Firm, PLLC are highly experienced Charleston personal injury lawyers with over 75 years of experience. We are committed to your rights.
Causes of Chemical Burns
Chemical burns commonly occur in the workplace, but they can also happen in virtually any setting, such as the home or a school. The caustic substances in chemical products can cause not only external damage but also internal damage once they have penetrated the layers of the skin. All employers have the obligation to ensure their employees are safe and reduce the risk of chemical burns.
These measures might include the following:
- Advising all employees to wear gloves, masks, and other protective clothing
- Instructing employees to avoid inhaling noxious fumes or staying too long in a toxic area
- Provide tools or equipment for employees, in case of emergencies, such as eye wash stations or showers
Most injuries in the workplace, such as chemical burns, are covered by workers’ compensation, although the manner in which they are resolved will vary case by case. As Charleston injury attorneys, our job is to advocate on your behalf and find the means to help you move forward.
