    Your employer has a duty of care to make sure you are safe at work, and this includes protecting you from harmful substances that could cause or aggravate skin conditions such as Dermatitis at work. Where possible, your employer should try to source and use safer products, provide the appropriate PPE and minimise your contact with hazardous materials.

    • Cleaners
    • Construction workers

    How to Claim Compensation for Dermatitis or Skin Disease

    The first step in making a compensation claim is by talking to one of our specialists and letting them know the details about your Dermatitis or skin disease. Then we will try to identify whether it is associated with your job and how we can prove that its work related.

    Once we have these details a Personal Injury lawyer who specialises in occupational disease claims will assess your claim and tell you how successful your claim is likely to be. The amount of compensation you will receive for work related skin diseases varies depending on the severity and whether or not you can return to work at the same capacity or go back to work at all.

    If you have any evidence of your skin condition like photos or you have paid a visit to your doctor or dermatologist, these will come in extremely handy. Also, If you know of anyone else that has suffered from the same skin disease, get their names and contact details because we will be able to help them too. They may also be able to provide witness statements or evidence that can support your claim. Even if you don’t have any evidence or witnesses please don’t stress because we still might be able to help you.
