Construction workers handling volatile chemicals such as solvents, acids and cleaning compounds are at constant risk of injury. If their skin or eyes are exposed to dangerous chemical agents or if they inhale volatile gases, serious and even life-threatening injuries can occur.
Construction workers injured in this way may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. But that compensation is scant comfort to someone who has suffered blindness, vision impairment, lung damage or serious scarring. However, if the injury was caused by the negligence of someone not employed by your company or by the failure of your employer to follow proper safety procedures, you may be eligible for additional compensation through a third-party claim.
