Harrisburg Chemical Burns Lawyer

Serving Justice throughout Pennsylvania Since 1888

Chemical burns can be painful and have permanent effects. Common substances that may cause severe chemical burn damage to the eyes or skin can be found in the workplace as well as homes where children may reside. Irresponsible storage of these materials, improper cleanup after their use, or authorizing their use without proper warning of risks may be considered negligent acts if they lead to chemical burn injuries.

Chemical burns may be caused by:
  • Wet concrete
  • Batteries
  • Mold removers
  • Industrial cleaners
  • Paint thinners/removers
  • Metalworking fluids
  • Epoxy resins
  • Products made with lye

If you or a loved one has sustained a chemical burn and believe the negligence of another party may be to blame, talk to a Harrisburg burn injury attorney at Metzger Wickersham about your rights. You may be entitled to compensation for damages related to your injury.

Your initial consultation is free when you call (888) 286-2850.

Symptoms of Chemical Burns

Chemical burns can lead to blindness or other life-changing injuries. Direct skin contact may not be necessary; injury could occur from inhalation of fumes and gases. Before you use any cleaner or solvent, make sure to read the warning label completely and follow the recommended steps to take in case of exposure to skin or eyes.

Symptoms of a chemical burn could include the following:

  • Burning, redness, or irritation at contact site
  • Numbness or pain at contact site
  • Blistering or black, dead skin at contact site
  • Changes in vision
  • Vomiting
  • Respiratory problems

If you sustain a chemical burn, the instinct to use water to treat the injury may aggravate the situation. It is essential that you seek medical attention immediately.
