Dermatitis is a condition that involves redness, blistering and cracking of the skin which can be very painful resulting in impaired movement. It can occur when an individual is in contact with irritating substances such as chemicals, soaps, detergents and oils.
Dermatitis usually occurs while working. Your employer has a duty of care to protect your health and safety while you are at work. They must have in place certain protective measures to reduce the likelihood of their employees being affected by work induced dermatitis.
If your employer fails in their duty of care to prevent work induced dermatitis, you may have a claim against them for compensation.
It is possible to make a claim against your employer if you still work for them and even if they are no longer operating. You may be able to claim compensation for:
- Your injury
- Loss of past and future earning
- Medical and care expenses
- Any other proven losses sustained as a result of your dermatitis
Our specialist personal injury solicitors are able to make a claim on your behalf if you have suffered with work induced dermatitis. We understand that your everyday life may be significantly effected as a result of your injury restricting your movement, so we will seek to achieve the maximum amount of compensation for you.
