Work-Related Skin Conditions

Claims for work-related skin conditions are amongst the most common kinds of claim we deal with here at Your Personal Injury Partner, as they are a risk for so many people in such a variety of sectors. Many employees come into contact with substances which can harm skin, leaving them with painful ongoing skin conditions and in some cases forcing them to take time off work to recover.

If you have a skin condition as a result of the sector you work in you could be entitled to make a claim – and the amount you’re entitled to could be more if the negligent behaviour of your employer contributed to your illness.
