Chemical Burn Injuries
Orlando Construction Accident Attorney
Construction sites can be populated with all manners of hazards if supervisors, foremen, and parent companies are not serious about maintaining safe practices. While many companies are aware of and plan for common jobsite dangers – such as falling objects and equipment failures – many overlook the dangers of chemical products. A single mistake can lead to a dangerous toxic substance exposure event and seriously injure a worker, particularly if the chemical is volatile enough to cause a burn injury.
A worker exposed to toxic, caustic, or poisonous chemicals may suffer:
- Severe burn injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain damage
- Extended bouts of vomiting
If you or a loved one has been harmed by a dangerous substance while working on a construction site, or within any other industrial occupation, Todd Miner Law can be the legal team that elevates your claim. We are led by Attorney Todd Miner, who has earned an AV Preeminent® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® and has 20+ years of injury case experience as both plaintiff and defendant counsel.

Lingering Harm Caused by Chemicals
After a construction worker is exposed to dangerous chemicals, any immediate compensation offered through a settlement, if such an offer is created at all, will most likely not be nearly enough. Chemical exposure will usually cause devastating damage immediately but even more harm as time goes on and symptoms worsen or become noticeable. Before you accept any settlement offers, be sure to get fully evaluated by a physician and speak to your attorney.
