Pool Chemical Accidents
Injuries & Accidents Caused by Dangerous Pool Chemicals
Most public or private pools and spas use chemicals in order to avoid having the water corrupted by bacteria or parasites. In some cases, these chemicals are used incorrectly, causing injury or damage to the person using them. These chemicals are poisons, and if they are over the amount that a body can tolerate, they can cause serious injury and damage not only to the skin, but to the eyes, liver, lungs or other organs. This can be particularly dangerous for children who love to spend time in the water and may have used a pool or spa extensively and now are suffering injury as a result. Any such injury accident should be addressed with the help of an aquatic accident and drowning attorney from The Doan Law Firm, P.C.
