    Methyl Ethyl Ketone, or MEK as it is abbreviated to is a chemical that is used in a number of industries such as paint, rubber, plastic and textiles.Though it is usually safe if safety precautions and guidelines are followed, accidents do happen. If breathed in, ingested, or absorbed through the skin, MEK can be harmful to your health.

    If this has happened to you, and the incident wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a Welwyn Hatfield no win no fee* injury compensation claim for your pain and suffering.


    There are many regulations and practices in place to limit exposure to those who must work or produce MEK. This includes the use of the necessary and correct personal protective equipment, designed to stop skin and inhalation exposure, proper training to minimise unsafe practices, and appropriate ventilation for hazardous fumes.

    If an accident happens, such as spillage, poor maintenance, or safe working practices are not observed, and injuries have occurred due to MEK exposure, you may be entitled to make a Welwyn Hatfield no win no fee* injury compensation claim with the help of Accident Advice Helpline.

    Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment

    MEK, like many solvents, usually targets the central nervous system and causes headaches, fatigue, dizziness, vomiting, and issues, such as irritation to the nose, throat,  eyes and skin. If there is constant exposure, the issues could be very serious, if high levels are reached. This can include organ damage, to the liver and kidney, and cause, not only damage to the nervous system, but to the respiratory system as well.

    Further issues are caused by the fact that MEK leaves the system quickly, so diagnosing it can be difficult unless done directly after exposure, through blood and urine tests, though it can sometimes be detected on the breath. The treatment, however, is simple enough, and is achieved by removing the threat of further exposure and treating whatever symptoms you may have. Whatever the case, if this has occurred and it was not your fault, you should be able to make a Welwyn Hatfield no win no fee* injury compensation claim.
