Cincinnati Chemical Burn Lawyer

Chemical burns occur when corrosive chemicals come into contact with the skin or other body parts, causing the skin to dissolve and potentially causing systemic injuries as well. Most chemical burns occur as a result of very strong acid such as sulfuric acid (found in battery acid) or a strong base such as sodium hydroxide (found in lye), but other chemicals may cause reactions as well.

Wherever toxic chemicals are stored, there is typically someone responsible for maintaining their storage and safety. If that person is negligent in their duties, or a product designed to contain such chemicals is defective, they may be found liable for injuries that occur. If you suffer a chemical burn because of the negligence of another person or entity, contact the Cincinnati personal injury attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733, and we can evaluate your case.
