Latex Allergy Claims

If you’re a medical professional, work in the health and beauty industry or work in a sector where you’re exposed to potentially harmful substances it’s likely that you’ll have to wear latex gloves at some stage – but with up to six per cent of the population suffering from an allergy to the material, there are obvious risks.

If you have had an allergic reaction after using latex gloves at work then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Contact the specialist team here at Your Personal Injury Partner to find out more – you can reach us on 01782 608 744 or fill out our contact form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Allergic reactions to latex

Latex reactions vary in their severity – some who are sensitive to the material will develop a temporary rash after coming into contact with it, but those with a severe allergy to latex could have a life threatening perioperative anaphylactic reaction.

The most common kinds of reactions to latex are:

  • Rashes
  • Itching
  • Blistering/oozing of the skin

We understand just how life changing developing an allergy to latex, or having a reaction, could be. Doctors who suffer reactions to latex may be forced to change their profession, as could other health professionals, and employees in the beauty industry.

We can claim compensation which covers both the condition itself and the inconvenience and potential cost of lost working hours.
