Workers Compensation Chemical Burn Injury Claims
Chemical burns may not be apparent upon contact and can sometimes occur by inhalation. It is critical to seek proper medical care immediately after contact with the chemical and it is also very important to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible.
Burn injuries can be especially painful and slow to heal requiring long periods of time out of work and lost wages. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you sort through the medical care benefits you deserve and help you recover lost wages. Further, hiring an experienced workers’ comp attorney can be key in recovering for any permanent disability you have suffered from a chemical burn.
