If you have suffered dermatitis as a result of your workplace environment then it is possible you have a case for personal injury compensation.
If you would like to know exactly how much compensation for dermatitis at work then it is worthwhile speaking about your case in detail to a specialised industrial disease solicitor.
Below is a guide as to the level of settlement you are likely to receive in certain circumstances.
- If both hands are affected by dermatitis to the point of cracking and soreness then employment prospects can be impinged upon. There is often a psychological impact and a lack of ability to carry out everyday tasks like housework. If there is no sign of a full recovery then you can receive compensation amounts between £9,800 and £13,700.
- If one hand has been damaged by dermatitis for a prolonged period of time but has been resolved with treatment or the use of gloves for tasks that pose a risk to the condition, then £6,175 up to £8,150 is the claim bracket you should expect.
- If you have experienced itching and skin irritation as well as rashes on either or both of your hands because of dermatitis then you will be looking at around £1,225 up to £2,800 if the condition has been resolved within a matter of months.
Most cases of dermatitis at work relate to the hands although there are some instances where the head can be affected too.
If your dermatitis is on your face then compensation amounts are likely to be higher as this is a very visible part of your body.
