Skin condition compensation lawyers

Work related illness

Skin conditions and dermatitis can often be caused by substances to which people are exposed in their work. They can lead to irritation, itching and bleeding which can be debilitating and painful for the sufferer. In some cases skin conditions such as dermatitis and eczema can lead to scarring and disfigurement, which can result in a reduced quality of life.
