Chemical burns affect not only those in the fields of manufacturing, construction, mining, medicine and chemical fabrication, but also everyday people who end up having their lives forever altered due to inadvertent contact with dangerous substances. These tragic injuries unfortunately occur all too often in the United States. According to the American Burn Association, from 2002 to 2011, chemical burns were the sixth most prevalent type of burn treated at burn centers.

Attorneys Who Understand The Science And Law Regarding Chemical Burn Cases
We use our understanding of the science behind chemical burns to conduct thorough investigations and conduct piercing cross-examinations. This knowledge includes knowing that some of the substances that often lead to chemical burns are:
- Sulfuric acid
- Hydrochloric acid
- Hydrofluoric acid
- Dimethyl sulfate
- Anhydrous ammonia
- Silver nitrate
- Metal cleaners
- Concrete mix
- Pool chlorinators
- Drain cleaner
A 45-year-old man sprayed a pain-relieving product and suffered third-degree burns over his entire leg as a result of exposure to the spray. Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, searched the entire U.S. to find multiple examples of people using the spray and receiving first-, second- and third-degree burns, and used this evidence to our client’s advantage.
Result: Confidential settlement for our client.
Chemical Burns And Product Liability Cases
In many situations, it is necessary to bring a products liability (defective product) lawsuit in order to have the best chance of recovering full and fair compensation. These matters are typically far more intricate than other cases, as they require extensive investigation in order to hold the manufacturer of injury-causing products liable for the damage they caused.
At Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, our team of Oakland chemical burn injury lawyers has the courtroom experience and focused litigation approach necessary to give you a strong chance of success in products liability cases and all other types of personal injury matters.
