Skin Cancer Claims Information

More than sixty thousand people experience skin related disease in Great Britain of which 2/3 are eczema or related. A worrying statistic is that 3000 cases are diagnosed yearly, and 80% of those people contract dermatitis with 75% of these developing into a more serious condition.

Hairdressers, oil gas extraction workers, archaeological workers, construction workers, food industry, printing, health care (which includes dental and vets) are some of the occupations that have many occupational skin diseases amongst them.

What Are Some Common Causes of Skin Cancer?

Results from research carried out show that skin cancer is most likely to occur from tanning booths and sunlamps.

However, there are also other causes of skin cancer that are not as familiar such as employees not being given the right protection when working all day outdoors. Without the right protection, they are exposed to sunlight which in the long run can lead to skin cancer.

How Can I Avoid Occupation Skin Cancer Compensation Claims as an Employee?
  • Where hazards cannot be eliminated… minimise them
  • Rotate tasks to avoid overexposure of some employees
  • Use less harmful chemicals where possible
  • Provide personal protective gear and ensure you enforce that they are worn at all times.
  • Train workers about the causes of occupational skin diseases.
How Much Compensation Could I Claim for Skin Cancer?

The amount of occupational skin cancer compensation claims cannot be determined beforehand. The amount awarded depends on some factors which include; the severity of the condition, life challenges caused by the condition, other potential dangers like lack of hearing and age of the claimant. Tylers Solicitors will determine the figure after reviewing the case.

What are the Main Symptoms of Skin Cancer?
  • A spot or sore that does not heal within three weeks.
  • A spot or sore that remains to hurt, scab or bleed for more than three weeks.
  • Skin that has broken down and there is no reason that you believe can cause this change and it does not heal within three weeks.
