How Is Dermatitis Or A Skin Condition Caused?
If your job or workplace exposed you to allergens or irritating substances, you may have developed inflammation, soreness and itchiness to the skin and other similar symptoms. There are many different substances which can cause such a condition and your employer is under a duty to minimise your exposure and risk of developing such conditions.
Can I make a claim?
You may have grounds for making a no win, no fee claim if you are suffering from dermatitis or a skin condition which you believe has been caused by exposure to allergens or irritating substances in the work place.
You don’t need to have had a formal diagnosis of your condition or to have received medical treatment in order to make a claim. We can still help you even if you are no longer employed by your employer or if they have since gone out of business. You can claim even if you were exposed to allergens or irritating substances many years ago.
If you feel you are affected by dermatitis or a skin condition caused by exposure in your work or work place, please call us for free, no obligation advice as to whether you have a claim.
What do I have to pay?
Since our firm was established, we prided ourselves on our clients receiving 100% of their compensation. As solicitors, we claim our legal fees from our opponents on top of any compensation and therefore, we gave the guarantee that our clients receive 100% compensation.
However, following Government changes and the introduction of the Legal Aid, Punishment and Sentencing of Offenders Act which came into force on the 1 April 2013, we are now not able to recover all of our legal fees from our opponent and therefore only on successful cases, we do make a small charge from our client’s compensation.
Therefore, if you are successful in your claim there will be a charge of up to 20% (plus 4% VAT) of your compensation. If for whatever reason, you are unsuccessful we will make no charge for our work and therefore our agreement remains a no win, no fee agreement.
Given the new rules will allow solicitors and claims management companies to charge a fee of up to 50% of the compensation awarded (and we are aware of firms who do this), we think our small deduction is very competitive and keeping in the tradition of ensuring clients get the maximum, and as much of the compensation as possible.
What does “No Win, No Fee” actually mean?
It is simple: if you do not succeed in your claim, you pay nothing.
Will I have to fill out loads of paperwork?
No, we will be able to do most of the necessary paperwork for you. You will have to check the details of your claim before it is submitted, but we will assist you with this.
