Limited regulations, reduced hygiene, and poor training alongside the rising popularity of certain beauty or hair treatments have resulted in an increase in beauty-related injuries as observed by our personal injury claims team over the past few years.
Can I claim if I have suffered from a beauty treatment injury?
If you have visited a beauty salon or hairdressers, you will have expected a professional treatment from a fully trained beautician or hairstylist. However, when things take a turn for the worse due to the negligence of a salon or a beauty professional, you may be able to claim for physical or psychological injuries.
Our personal injury team is highly experienced in dealing with a wide range of beauty treatment claims relating to injuries caused by:
- Botox injections
- Hair extensions
- Hair removal
- Semi-permanent make-up
- Tinting and colouring
- Waxing and lasering
Common injuries occurring from these treatments include allergic reactions, burns, permanent damage to the skin, injuries relating to the eyes, hair and scalp damage including hair loss.
If you believe that you have suffered as a result of a beauty treatment or cosmetic procedure due to the negligence of the professional(s) providing the treatment, then get in touch with our personal injury team today to talk about a compensation claim.
How do I make a claim for beauty treatment compensation?
If you believe there was negligence during your treatment due to a lack of knowledge or the incorrect use of equipment or products, speak to our experienced personal injury team as soon as possible and we can advise you on ensuring you have the right evidence to support your claim:
- Proof of payment
- Photographs of the damage as soon as you can
- A copy of the accident report
- The name and address of the beauty salon and the name of the person who carried out your treatment
- Any details you may have on the products that were used, and if a patch test was undertaken prior to any treatment
- Details of any medical treatment you have received as a result of the injury
- Any other expenses incurred
We will always advise you not to apply any other products until you have had an initial consultation which may impact your ability to claim (other than following any medical advice from your GP or hospital). We will then be able to advise you on next steps.
What’s the claims process for beauty salon negligence cases?
After discussing your case with you, and reviewing the evidence, we will contact the relevant party to inform them of your claim. They will then have the opportunity to undertake an investigation and respond as to whether they take responsibility.
At this point, discussions may begin around a settlement figure. If your claim is contested, court proceedings may follow, all of which will be managed by your personal injury solicitor and you will be kept fully informed throughout the process.
How much compensation will I receive for my beauty treatment injury?
Every personal injury claim is different. The level of compensation you will receive for your injuries will depend on:
- The emotional and physical impact of your injuries
- The cost of correcting the treatment
- Any financial losses you may have incurred as a result of the injury
To ensure you get the compensation that you deserve we will arrange for an independent medical examination to determine the full extent of your injuries and support your compensation claim.
