Chemical burns can occur from exposure to a heat source but also from exposure to corrosive substances like acid, base, oxidizers, solvents, reducing agents, or alkalizing agents. Burns are extremely painful, can require surgical graphs, may require long term care, and the scarring that is sometimes left behind can take a severe emotional toll. If chemicals burned victims, tissues could be damaged under the skin and prolonged exposure over time or old burns could lead to cancer. It’s critical to seek proper medical care immediately if you have been burned. If you’ve suffered a work-related burn you might also be entitled to compensation from the product’s manufacturer.
