Skin Disease Claims

Workplace irritants such as chemicals, dusts and glues can cause painful skin conditions which often lead to long-term health problems.

Industrial dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a common work-related skin disease which causes skin inflammation and irritation as a result of exposure to a number of substances, including frequent contact with water.

Exposure to certain materials, such as latex, can also lead to hypersensitivity or an allergy to the substance. In some cases this can be fatal if a person suffers a serious reaction, such as anaphylactic shock.

If you have developed a skin disease as a result of your workplace conditions, our expert industrial disease specialists can help you to make a claim for compensation. If you’re a trade union member, we will work with your union to ensure better safety protections are introduced in your workplace.

“After my claim, my employers changed their procedures so that staff are now adequately protected when dealing with hazardous chemicals.”
