Workers who deal with highly toxic or corrosive liquids need to make sure they know what they’re doing when they handle them. This also means ensuring that they substances stored properly, otherwise it could be a recipe for disaster.
It doesn’t take a dermatologist to work out what could happen if an individual accidentally mistook a container of corrosive liquid for something else, or if a substance such as sulphuric acid were to be accidentally splashed onto somebody’s skin. The type of damage that could be done under these circumstances could result in an injury that would require a series of operations and time off work. In some cases, permanent disfigurement could be suffered, along with the psychological trauma that can go hand in hand with it.
If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault after somehow coming into contact with this sort of substance, you might be able to take some form of claims action if you could prove that a third party’s negligence resulted in your misfortune.
Corrosive liquids and Dover claims solicitors
Perhaps a colleague of yours had been foolish enough to decant some highly corrosive drain cleaner into a another unlabelled container for some reason or another, without considering that his actions might lead to an accident. If this was left in a place where you were likely to encounter it and you decided to dispose of it, there could be a good chance that you might suffer a nasty burn injury, through no fault of your own.
