Florida Chemical Burn Attorneys
Chemical burns are often the result of a workplace accident or a defective or dangerous product. If your injury occurred at work, talk to an attorney before agreeing to a any settlement. While workers’ compensation benefits don’t come with the burden to prove your employer’s fault, if your employer was negligent in causing your injury, it’s possible that you could receive greater compensation through a personal injury claim. You may also be able to bring claims against other parties.
Chemical cleaners, batteries, teeth-whitening products, and pool chlorination products are all common products at the root chemical burn claims. If any product gave you chemical burns, consider your eligibility for a products liability claim. If the chemical product was defective or did not include adequate warnings, you could receive compensation from the manufacturing company without having to prove negligence, through a cause of action for strict liability. It’s always worthwhile to explore your legal options with help from an attorney after a serious chemical burn injury.

I met Dan when I was in therapy and he came and right away it felt like a family member visiting you, a connection, like a brother. He’s been on both sides of the fence. He’s represented the hospitals and the doctors, and then he jumped over to the other side. It is a fantastic group, it was like Bell Belichick leading the team. They changed my life and still check on me. I recommend FHV to anybody and they thank me.
I met Dan about a year ago. He never made me feel that it was about the money. When he spoke with me he was asking how Bill (my brother) was and if he was doing better. He made me feel like family and always asked if I was alright. That means a lot. Everyday is something new and I challenge for my brother. I would recommend [FHV] to everybody because I really believe that they’re helping from their hearts… from a really good place.
For anyone to represent anyone for 5 years and take the time to do it, not once just “get it out of the way” and “get it done with”. It was about what was best for Hunter and our family. It was about the case and the people.
