Beauty Treatment Injuries
Some of the most commonly suffered injuries from beauty treatments include:
skin reactions where a patch-test is not performed before a hair treatment
allergic reactions as a result of the chemicals used in treatments
allergic reaction from products applied to your skin (massage oil containing nuts would be extremely serious to a person suffering from such an allergy)
eye injuries as a result of misapplied eyelash extensions or eyelash dyeing treatments
tanning injuries arising from the misuse and uncontrolled tanning booths
facial disfigurement, muscle paralysis or impaired vision from incorrectly administered Botox
If you have suffered an injury as a result of any of these treatments, or indeed any other beauty/cosmetic therapies, you may be successful in pursuing a claim for personal injury and associated damages.
Depending on the severity of your injuries and the individual circumstances surrounding your claim, you may be able to claim compensation for: the reimbursement of the price of the treatment; the cost of any corrective surgery or treatments which may be required; loss of earnings and psychological suffering.
Establishing liability can be difficult, but it is not impossible. You should always seek the advice of a qualified solicitor before deciding whether to pursue a claim of this nature.
Farleys Solicitors have a dedicated team of personal injury specialists who are highly experienced in achieving compensation for our clients. You can therefore rest assured that your case will be conducted by a solicitor who is fully qualified and will be fully familiar with your case at all times.
We also work closely with organisations which can support you if you have been left with permanent scarring or a visible difference. One of these charities is Changing Faces.
Changing Faces is a nationwide charity which supports children and adults with visible differences to the face, hands, or body, whether present from birth or caused by accident, injury, or illness or medical episode. The charity offers a range of services and support from counselling to skin camouflage services.
