Thompsons No Win No Fee solicitors are here to help you claim the compensation you deserve if you are suffering from dermatitis from unsafe working conditions, our solicitors have over 25 years experience dealing with compensation claims.
A common skin condition which can be contracted at work and that often gives rise to compensation claims is contact dermatitis. The condition is caused by prolonged exposure to substances which dry out the skin. These substances can include detergents, solvents, cements or even water. If you have dermatitis as a result of working with these substances then you may be entitled to claim compensation.
One of the first signs of dermatitis is skin becoming dry, itchy and inflamed. After this the skin can begin to blister and flake. Sometimes the damage is not visible for some time but can build up over a period of time before becoming noticeable.
Some workers are more at risk of contracting dermatitis than others due to the nature of their job. These jobs include hairdressing, cleaning, catering and construction as they involve working with chemicals. However, dermatitis can be contracted in almost any workplace.
Employers have a legal duty to provide protection against prolonged exposure to substances which could cause dermatitis and to provide information on any risks involved.
