Corrosive Chemical Injuries from Product Malfunctions

Some machine parts may contain powerful chemicals that, when mixed or released, can become very dangerous if they come in contact with consumers. In particular, corrosive substances can leak from certain malfunctioning or worn down parts, such as vehicle batteries. These leaks can cause considerable pain and suffering if a person is unknowingly exposed to these hazardous materials.

If you or someone you love has sustained an injury because of a product defect, the product’s manufacturer may be held legally liable for the cost of those injuries. For more information regarding your full range of legal options after sustaining an acid burn or other chemical injury, contact a Denver personal injury attorney from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today at (303) 423-1770.

Injuries from Corrosive Substance Exposure

Corrosive acids and other substances are commonly used in several parts in vehicles and other machines. These substances, including hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and nitric acid, can cause serious health problems for those exposed to them. In particular, a containment leak or explosion may cause some of the following injuries:

  • Mild to severe skin irritation
  • Especially painful irritation in open wounds
  • Damage to the throat and stomach if ingested
  • Damage to the nose, throat, and lungs if inhaled

If a person suffers these or other health complications as a result of chemical exposure that should have been prevented, they may be able to file a claim against the product manufacturer for the costs they incur while receiving treatment.

An injury caused by a manufacturer’s failure to adequately seal off corrosive materials may leave you with serious injuries and substantial financial burdens in the way of medical bills and lost wages. However, compensation may be available through an injury lawsuit. For a no-cost case evaluation regarding your legal options, contact a Denver personal injury lawyer from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today by calling (303) 423-1770.
