Allergic Rhinitis Compensation Claims

Allergic Rhinitis is the inflammation of the inside of the nose which results from an allergic reaction to things such as pollen, dust, mould or flakes of skin from specific animals. Allergic Rhinitis is an extremely common condition which is thought to affect around 20% of the population. Although this is a relatively common complaint, it can often be brought on by conditions in the workplace. As an employee, you have every right to expect a safe workplace. But many people are exposed to unsafe conditions because of the materials they work with, or the state of their working environment. When this happens it can have serious implications for your health. If your health has been affected by adverse conditions in the workplace you could be entitled to allergic rhinitis compensation. To find out how our expert legal professionals can help you get the compensation award you are entitled to call our team immediately.

What are the Causes of Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic Rhinitis occurs when the immune system reacts to an allergen as if it was harmful. What happens then is that cells release certain chemicals that cause the inside layer of the nose known as the mucus membrane to swell and produce too much mucus. One such allergen is pollen which results in a common complaint known as hay fever. Other allergens include mould spores, house dust and skin flakes or saliva from certain animals.

One of the main causes of Allergic Rhinitis is unsuitable conditions in the workplace. Every employer has a duty of care towards their staff, and failure to provide safe working conditions, and the relevant PPE can be deemed to be negligent. If you are working in unsafe conditions or with dangerous materials it can have serious implications for your health. If you have been exposed to any of the allergens listed above due to an unsafe working environment or practices, we are here for you. To get details of how we can help with your Allergic Rhinitis compensation claim call our team of experienced personal injury solicitors today.

    What are The Symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis

    When you suffer from Allergic Rhinitis it is like having acute hay fever all year round. Allergic Rhinitis usually results in cold like symptoms, including sneezing, itchiness and a blocked or runny nose. These symptoms will generally start not long after being exposed to an allergen. The effect of allergic rhinitis will vary from person to person, with some people suffering only for several months of the year, and others being affected all year round. Quite often the symptoms are mild and can be easily treated, however for certain people symptoms are persistent that result in sleep problems and interfere with your quality of life.

    When this happens and you think it is as a direct result of your working conditions, you could be entitled to claim compensation for the impact it has had on your life and work. To get the ball rolling contact our team who will be able to determine whether you have a legitimate claim and advise you on the way forward.

    How Do I Make a Claim for Allergic Rhinitis Compensation

    In most cases employers will not accept responsibility for causing your health problems. The main reason is that it would be extremely costly if they were to admit liability. They will usually make every effort to deny being at fault, and you could even find yourself losing your job if you seek compensation – assuming you haven’t already been forced to give up work because of the damage to your health.

    However, it is difficult for anyone to cope with taking legal action on their own. This is where a solicitor is invaluable. They have handled many such cases before, and have a full understanding of the process required to make a compensation claim for health conditions caused by the workplace.
