Beauty treatment compensation claims
Beauty treatments in a salon can include skin treatments, eyelash treatments and hair care. There are many treatments in place which people undertake to look and feel good.
If things go wrong during any procedures or treatments, the consequences of this can be devastating for a person. This can include undergoing treatment from someone who is not properly trained, faulty equipment, or rules and regulations not being properly followed.
If you have suffered due to the neglect during a beauty procedure or treatment, it can be both physically painful and mentally devastating. In an attempt to make things better, you may find yourself suffering financial burdens while doing so.
Suffering a beauty treatment error can make a huge difference to your day to day life. This can include a person not wanting to go out or see anyone, or leave a person suffering to the extent that that are unable to work.
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of a beauty therapist, then you may be entitled to claim compensation. Call our team of specialist advisors today on 0121 8276 446 to discuss how we can assist you.
Common beauty treatment injuries
All beauty salons should ensure you have undergone a patch test, if there will be chemicals involved, to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction. They should have a consultation with you to discuss all the risks involved in the procedure, how the procedure will take place, and any equipment that will be used.
Some of the common beauty treatment accident can include:-
- Laser treatment injuries.
- Damage to the hair or scalp from hair dye.
- Burns from wax.
- Injuries from any chemicals involved.
- Injuries or burns from make up products.
If your injury has not been mentioned above, then you may still be entitled to claim compensation. Call our specialist advisors today on 0121 8276 446 to discuss how we can assist you.
What are the laws and regulations in the beauty industry?
In the UK, a therapist does not have to be qualified if they are carrying out a non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Non-surgical treatments or procedure can include dermal fillers, laser hair removal or Botox.
Due there not being any qualifications required, a lot of the people carrying out the treatment lack the abilities and understanding to correctly and safely carry out the procedure. This can have severe consequences such as burns and scars.
Only procedures that require surgery have to be carried out by a medically trained professional. In an industry as big as beauty, the least you would expect is for there to be strict rules and guidelines in place to ensure the safety of the person undergoing the treatment.
The equipment and products involved in the treatment will have been tested thoroughly, however these will still be operated by people who have not undergone the correct training, which means the risk is always there. An injury could also occur if the equipment’s or products are faulty.
What do I need to claim beauty treatment compensation?
If you have suffered an injury due to beauty treatment, then you are entitled to make a claim within 3 years.
Information that will need or that will help strengthen your case can include:-
- Evidence of your injury being reported in the salon’s accident report book.
- Photos of the injury.
- The date and time of when you went to the salon.
- The details of any medical treatment you have undertaken.
How much beauty treatment compensation could you receive?
Due to the range of treatments available and the injuries that can happen as a result, it’s difficult to give an exact compensation amount. Your case is unique to you and we’ll do everything we can to help you get the compensation you deserve. After your initial call, we can pass you over to one of our specialist solicitors who will give you an estimated sum of the compensation you can expect.
The amount of compensation you get for a beauty treatment claim will depend on many factors. Until the case has been fully assessed, and medical evidence has been obtained, the amount you get will not be finalised.
Many factors are taken into consideration, such as how severe the injury is, how it has affected your day-to-day life, and how it has financially affected you. No two cases are the same, therefore it is not possible to have set figures in place.
If your accident has left you unable to work, or needing extended time off, bringing a compensation claim forward can help reduce the risk of you being left out of pocket.
