Skin cancer

If you or a family member has developed skin cancer due to the negligence of your current or former employer, you could be entitled to a skin cancer compensation claim.

Occupational skin cancer is usually caused by unsafe exposure to chemicals, by-products, radiation and excessive exposure to sunlight. Skin cancers can be difficult to detect and are sometimes missed or receive a delayed diagnosis.

The types of professions typically at risk from developing industrial skin cancer include (but are not restricted to):

  • Airline pilots
  • Construction and road workers
  • Fishermen
  • Farmers
  • Postal workers
  • Any other outdoor profession
  • Metal workers
  • Printers
  • Electrical workers
  • Nuclear power workers
  • Medical staff

With the majority of our occupational disease clients successfully awarded compensation we work in partnership with specialist industrial and medical professionals to deliver the best possible results for you. Most claims are dealt with on a ‘no win – no fee’ basis.

We also act on behalf of relatives and dependants of people who have died as a result of workplace related cancer. With many years often lapsing between exposure and diagnosis, if a former employer is longer in operation, we may still be able to recover compensation on your behalf.

With strict time limits imposed on recovering occupational disease compensation it’s important to act soon. Contact our Occupational Disease department today to find out more about how we can help you.
