Compensation for Occupational Dermatitis
Occupational dermatitis is one of the most widespread causes of ill health and affects people working in many industry sectors.
Nationally, across all industries, an estimated 84,000 people have dermatitis caused or made worse by their work. This results in 132,000 lost working days each year and costs employers some £20 million.
Symptoms range from itching, pain, redness, soreness, cracked skin, swelling, bleeding from skin, a formation of small blisters or weals (itchy red circles with a white centre) on the skin. In some cases, the symptoms may be permanent and the individual may have to stop work as a result.
If you are suffering from occupational dermatitis sustained as a result of your working conditions, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
The aim in a successful claim for compensation for occupational dermatitis is to put the injured worker back in the position in which they would have been if the accident had not occurred or the condition had not developed.
We have specialist solicitors who can deal with your claim and take away the worry and the stress and seek compensation on your behalf.
