    How you could sustain a chemical injury


    Many of the industrial chemicals used today can have serious side-effects for the people who have been dangerously exposed to them. Typically, the severity of a chemical injury usually depends on the length of time a person has been exposed to the chemical, as well as the toxicity of the chemical itself.

    Some people are more susceptible to the effects of a hazardous chemical than others, and therefore symptoms can vary widely. Long-term exposure to a chemical that is low in toxicity, or exposure to trace amounts of a highly toxic substance can cause gradual injury that is more difficult to detect. In such cases, an exception can be made allowing the victim to file a claim many years after initial exposure to the chemical.

    Whatever the circumstances of your injury, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as you start feeling unwell. Treating chemical injuries early can prevent a lifetime of pain or even disability. Your medical report is also a crucial piece of evidence that will be used to support your claim. Without this document, it is unlikely you have a valid chemical injury compensation claim.

    How you could sustain a chemical injury

    A chemical injury is a serious condition that is caused by exposure to corrosive or toxic chemical substances. Chemical injuries are often sustained when:

    • Handling chemicals without using the proper equipment
    • Handling chemicals without wearing the correct protective gear
    • Working in an unsafe environment

    Effects of a chemical injury

    Most chemical injuries involve burns that are caused by acids and bases coming into direct contact with the skin. Other chemicals can cause internal organ damage such as:

    • Asbestosis
    • Mesothelioma
    • Arsenic poisoning
    • Lead poisoning
    • Mercury poisoning
    • Chronic respiratory inflammations.

    Certain chemicals have also recently been discovered to have carcinogenic properties that cause cancers and birth defects. For more information on how you could sustain a chemical injury and legal action you can take, call us now for a free chat with an adviser.
