Extremely high levels of chlorine in swimming pools can release gas off the surface, potentially causing chlorine gas injuries. Often the person most at risk is the person adding chlorine to the pool, but many times swimmers can be exposed to chlorine gas injuries and also may be injured in chlorine gas explosions simply by being in or near a pool at the time of the explosion. This usually occurs in an indoor pool and happens in places like health clubs and gyms that have a swimming pool. If you or a loved one have been involved in a accident involving a chlorine gas explosion, you should contact the attorneys at Munley law today for a FREE evaluation of your chlorine gas injury.
