Will I have to pay to claim dermatitis compensation?

Will I have to go to court for an occupational dermatitis compensation claim?
It's fairly rare for an occupational dermatitis claim to end up in court, though it can happen. But in most cases your Claims Direct lawyer will simply deal directly with your employer's lawyers or insurance company. You shouldn't be frightened to claim against your current employer either. It's against the law for you to be fired or even treated differently just because you have claimed compensation.
Will I need a medical to help make my claim?
Yes, in order to start your occupational dermatitis claim, we would need medical evidence to show that you do suffer from dermatitis, and that it is linked to substances you use in the workplace. The best way to do this is for you to see a dermatologist, who will be able to write a report about the causes and the seriousness of your dermatitis. This enables us to claim the right amount of money, based on how bad they think your condition is.

What sort of dermatitis leads to compensation claims?

Even if you aren't coming into contact with any of these substances at work, you can still develop occupational dermatitis as a result of:
- Constant hand washing
- Sweating inside safety gloves
- Drying your hands with paper towels
- Latex in safety gloves
All of these substances and working conditions can lead to occupational dermatitis, which can affect your ability to enjoy life, and even to continue in the same occupation. So if you are struggling with dermatitis or any other skin condition caused by your occupation, you really need to talk to us about starting a No Win No Fee compensation claim.
Who's to blame for my occupational dermatitis?
Your employer has a Duty of Care to protect you from harm in the workplace. This means that nothing to do with your occupation should cause you to develop dermatitis, urticaria or any other skin problems. So your employer may be at fault if:
- You were not made aware of the dangers of certain substances
- Protective equipment was not made available
- You weren't trained to handle dangerous substances
- You weren't advised about proper skin care
