If it has been diagnosed that you are suffering from a case of occupational dermatitis then it may be possible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
The level of compensation you could receive will be determined by a range of factors which include the severity of the condition, the pain and suffering endured and whether the effects of the condition have prevented you from working.
As a general rule of the thumb the compensation amounts from occupational dermatitis will range from a temporary mild irritation, to a more severe condition which may affect both hands over a prolonged time period, to a very severe case which affects both hands with painful permanent symptoms.
Approximate occupational dermatitis claim amounts
Temporary, mild symptoms which last over a period of several weeks or months – £1,000 to £3,000
Severe workplace dermatitis symptoms over several years – £3,000 to £8,000
Very severe permanent occupational dermatitis symptoms – £8,000 to £75,000
