Chemical Fires

Chemicals need to be stored and used very carefully. If someone around certain types of chemicals is not cautious with their storage or their use is inadequately monitored, these chemicals may heat up to a dangerous degree. In some cases, these chemicals can even set fire or cause an explosion. This poses an unnecessary threat to the welfare of individuals who are in the vicinity and could result in severe injuries.

If your injuries were caused by the negligent handling of dangerous chemicals, there may be legal options available to fight for fair compensation to address costs associated with the incident.

Causes of Chemical Fires

Most chemical fires are relatively easy to prevent, but occur because of someone’s careless or reckless actions. These fires can prove particularly dangerous, as some chemical fires may not be extinguished easily and can burn at very high temperatures.

The following are causes of chemical fires that may be attributable to negligence:

  • Allowing volatile chemicals to be stored near each other
  • Overheating volatile chemicals
  • Failing to take adequate safety precautions when mixing chemicals that react violently
  • Failing to install adequate warning or extinguishing systems for fire outbreaks
