How to Claim Compensation for Dermatitis or Skin Disease

The easiest way to start a compensation claim is simply by talking to us. First we need to know about the Dermatitis or skin disease you have suffered from; and for how long. Then we’ll ask you about your job and the type of work that you do.

When we have the details, a Personal Injury Solicitor that specialises in occupational disease claims will evaluate your claim on a No Win No Fee basis; and we can tell you how successful your claim is expected to be. The amount of compensation paid for work related skin diseases varies from case to case depending on how serious the skin condition is; and how long it takes to return to work and how much you have suffered as a result.

If you have any photos of your skin problem, or you have seen a doctor or dermatologist; we’ll need to know about these. If anyone else at your work suffered from the same skin disease, get their names and contact details as their witness statements or evidence may help to support your claim. Don’t worry if you don’t have any evidence or witnesses because we can help you.
