Industrial Dermatitis Claims

Industrial dermatitis refers to a skin condition contracted as a result of your working environment. Dermatitis can be very unpleasant, with symptoms including dry, itchy and painful patches of skin, cracking, swelling and blistering.

We are based in Birkenhead and our solicitors cover cases in Liverpool, Merseyside, Cheshire and across the North West.

If you have been diagnosed with dermatitis and think it might be work related, we can help you make a claim for financial compensation. Call us freephone 0800 781 3894 or complete an enquiry form and we will get in touch.

What Causes Industrial Dermatitis?

Dermatitis is caused by repeated exposure to an irritant; for example, if you work with chemicals and your employer has not put the proper safeguards in place, you may begin to experience symptoms.

Irritants can be chemical, biological, mechanical or physical – even something as seemingly innocuous as water can cause dermatitis if you are exposed to it regularly enough.

Who is at Risk?

Anyone who regularly comes into contact with potential irritants is at risk of developing work related dermatitis. This could be a hairdresser working with hair and beauty products, cleaners working with industrial strength cleaning solutions or factory workers required to handle harmful chemicals.

How Easy is it to Make a Claim?

At PHR Solicitors we make it as easy as possible for our clients to claim the compensation they deserve for cases of industrial dermatitis. A member of our industrial disease team will keep you updated on the progress of your claim and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.

We understand how hard it can be to make the decision to launch a claim against a current or former employer, so we make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.
