What is work-related dermatitis and do you need the help of injury solicitors in Gourock?
Contact dermatitis is a skin condition that arises after the skin comes into contact with harsh irritants such as chemicals, latex, dyes and more.
The condition is characterised by painful itching and redness, and can leave the sufferer in a chronic state of discomfort. There are many things that can cause the onset of dermatitis, but if it has occurred because of a substance you’ve encountered at work, you could have grounds to make a compensation claim.
Dermatitis irritants are commonplace in certain work environments such as salons, factories or industrial food plants/commercial kitchens. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure the safe handling of such irritants, but if they have neglected to take proper safety measures and you’ve developed this skin condition as a result, contact our personal injury solicitors in Gourock right away. Provided your condition developed within the past three years, you could have legal grounds to bring forth a claim and seek the maximum amount possible in damages.
