As an industrial worker, you are required to pay close attention to your environment and surroundings to avoid injury. In the event of a chemical plant accident, maintaining this focus can be very difficult. Often these types of industrial accidents can lead to devastating results for workers, leaving them permanently scarred, disfigured, or disabled. This not only affects the worker, but also family members and friends, placing a challenging burden on all caretakers. As a law firm that has recovered more than $1 billion in 5 years for injury clients over the years, Arnold & Itkin LLP is committed to securing compensation for injured workers.
Causes of Chemical Plant Burn Injuries
Chemical plant accidents typically occur when a supervisor or plant owner fails to maintain all of the proper safety standards in a facility.
Common causes of chemical plant accidents can include:
- Improper Training
- Defective Equipment
- Lack of Instruction
- OSHA Violations
- Inadequate Safety Warnings
- Incorrect Use of Chemicals
- Negligent Supervision
Burn injuries are commonly reported in chemical plants—especially when a large accident occurs. Due to the dangerous chemicals and hot materials, workers run a high risk of injury. Chemical burns can result in severe pain and suffering, leaving an employee unable to work for an extended time period. The combination of hot temperatures and chemical compounds can result in far worse damage than a typical burn injury. While a typical burn injury may require time away, a chemical burn injury could result in permanent disability.
Seeking Fair Compensation
Our industrial injury lawyers understand that in some cases, there is no amount of money that can repay the emotional and physical damage a person has endured. Even so, we are prepared to seek the fair compensation you deserve for your painful injuries. Workers' compensation benefits often fall short in covering ongoing treatment costs or additional medical bills, making a full recovery very difficult. Whether you are suffering from permanent disfigurement or extreme pain, our firm has the resources needed to handle your case. We have recovered millions of dollars and are equipped to fight for you.
