Dermatitis Claims Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

Dermatitis and eczema can be caused by certain working environments. In order to bring a claim for compensation for your skin condition, it needs to be established on the balance of probabilities (that is, that it is more likely than not) that it was your employer’s negligence that caused the condition. If you or a loved one is suffering from dermatitis, contact the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte Law today and we can help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Types of Dermatitis/Eczema

If you think you may be suffering from some form of dermatitis, then arrange an appointment with your GP to get a definite diagnosis. Your medical records will be vital to any subsequent compensation claim you bring. Common forms of dermatitis and eczema for which claims can be brought include:

  • contact dermatitis, where your skin becomes itchy, red and sore due to contact with an allergen or irritant; and
  • allergic contact dermatitis, which is caused when your immune system reacts to a harmful substance or chemical.

These are known together as industrial dermatitis and they, along with scalp dermatitis (which is typical in hair salon claims) can form the basis of claims for compensation. Our specialist solicitors will work with you to get you an outcome that adequately compensates you for your pain, suffering and loss.

Occupations at Risk of Dermatitis

Where you work in an environment in which you might be likely to sustain a skin condition, your employer owes you a duty to ensure that the risks are made known to you and are properly diminished. Occupations at high risk include:

  • photographic processors;
  • fabric dyers;
  • painters;
  • dentists;
  • cleaners;
  • caterers;
  • hairdressers;
  • glass and ceramic workers;
  • printers;
  • mechanics; and
  • construction workers.

The team at Jones Whyte will work hard to build a strong case for negligence on your behalf. We can hope to obtain usually between £1,000 and £14,000, with some very severe dermatitis cases being valued at up to £52,000. It all depends on where you have contracted the skin condition and how serious it is.
