Dermatitis, often referred to as eczema, is a well-known skin condition that most people are aware of and many have had in the past. It can be a naturally occurring condition in childhood or adulthood and it often passes with relatively minor treatment.
However this is not always the case and it would be inaccurate to say dermatitis is not uncomfortable and distressing for those who suffer from it. It is also a condition that is often avoidable. Most people who develop dermatitis later in their lives, there is a good chance it is caused by preventable factors. And if this is the case, there is also a good chance you can make a dermatitis claim. Read on to find out more...

If your employer has not provided protective equipment such as those mentioned above and you have suffered as a result, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
