Skin and Burn Disorders

Many workers’ compensation injuries in Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach are attributable to skin injuries. Workers’ compensation attorney Randy Zeldin of Boca Raton has represented numerous individuals in their claims for disability, due to skin problems.

Working people in the Boca Raton metropolitan area are subjected to burns from a number of sources. These include “arc” burns from welding equipment, flammable liquids and gases and structural fires. Restaurant and fast food workers commonly receive “scald” burns from cooking oils and grease. Chemical burns often occur in laboratories or factories, where acids or bases are used for cleaning or processing. Construction workers, particularly electricians or welders, are sometimes victims of electrical or radiation equipment, which can cause severe burns.

A recent medical study has found that 31% of burn victims never returned to work. Of course, the return to work is largely a function of the severity of the burn and the aftermath. Injured workers who had stress disorder and other psychological consequences were the least likely to return to work.

Another common workers’ compensation skin injury is known as “allergic contact dermatitis.” This is a common problem, which results when the skin’s immune system becomes sensitized to a substance and ultimately results in chronic inflammation. Typical symptoms are redness, itchiness, and scaling of the skin, along with inflammation. Common “triggers” include latex gloves, glues, oils and solvents or dyes). The only real cure is to eliminate the offending agent. Some physicians prescribe topical steroids. Pompano Beach and Deerfield Beach workers’ compensation attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., has represented numerous clients with allergic contact dermatitis.

Mr. Zeldin represented me at my social security disability hearing. He was always responsive to any questions, his staff was a delight to work with, and I feel I won my case by the comments Mr. Zeldin made at my administrative hearing before the judge. I highly recommend him. Debra
