Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Jason Itkin, Roland Christensen, Caj Boatright, and Trent Shelton, filed suit on behalf of a man who suffered a chemical burn injuries when phenol exploded out of a valve and onto his face and neck. The company responsible for maintaining and inspecting the valve failed to take corrective actions and follow proper protocols to ensure that employees at the plant were working in a safe work environment. Unfortunately, the company’s failure caused burns and injuries to our client that will last a lifetime.
Chemical burns are distinct from other kinds of burns. In addition to disfigurement and severe tissue damage, chemical burns also cause toxic exposure with long-term ramifications for the survivor. Chemical burns can also result in additional types of tissue damage that burns caused by fires can’t.
Arnold and Itkin LLP is proud to represent this hard-working young man whose life has taken a dramatic turn for the worse because of a company’s failure to do its job. We look forward to fighting to rebuild his life.
