Chemical Burn Accidents

What Causes Chemical Burns?

Chemical burns may occur during the fabrication of products or medications, during repairs, or as a result of a spill or other accident when using the product. Treatment for these burns varies depending on their severity and the chemicals used. Typically less severe burns are flushed immediately while more severe burns may require surgery or other treatment.

What is the Definition of Chemical Burns?

Chemical burn accidents are typically very serious, damaging, burns. As with other burns, chemical burns are classified in first, second, and third degree burn categories. Chemical burns are usually severe and result in a great amount of damage to the skin tissue.

Chemical burn injuries most commonly occur in workplace settings, but may also occur as a result of home accidents or while in other settings. Burn injuries may result after coming into contact with a variety of products. These products typically include industrial chemicals such as acids, strong alkali, silver nitrate, lye, and lime. Household products including some cleaning products, drain products, and fertilizers may also cause chemical burns.
