Injuries Caused by Beauty Treatments
What’s My Claim Worth has extensive experience in dealing with all types of personal injury compensation claims including beauty treatment compensation claims.
Millions of people spend thousands of pounds every year enjoying spa and beauty treatments as a way to relax and unwind or to improve their appearance. However, sometimes things go wrong and these experiences can result in personal injury. More and more people are sustaining personal injuries as a result of negligent beauty therapists and we have seen an increase in beauty treatment compensation claims in recent months.
Common Reasons for a Beauty Injury Claim
- Laser treatment
- Facial or body treatments
- Hair Removal Treatments
- Accidents at hair dressers
- Eyebrow, eyelash or hair tinting
- Body piercing
- Semi-permanent make-up
- Any other beauty or cosmetic treatment
If you have a beauty or cosmetic treatment, most reputable salons will ensure they carry out a full consultation before your treatment commences and conduct a patch test at least 24 hours prior to the treatment, to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to any chemicals they may use. If the salon fails to take these steps and you suffer a personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
Beauty treatment compensation claims are usually the result of allergic reactions to chemicals used or from the use of faulty equipment. Injuries suffered include burns or other skin damage, eye injuries, hair breakages and scalp damage and lacerations.
How much Could your Beauty Accident Claim be Worth?
Depending on the severity and type of injury that has occurred, the value of your claim may vary. What’s My Claim Worth has recently recovered compensation for a client who suffered a personal injury from a negligent beauty treatment. Our client attended a beauty salon to have her eyebrows waxed, during the treatment she felt pain above her eye but presumed it was from the procedure. However, on leaving the salon she noticed she had sustained a laceration to her eye. She returned to the salon, where she discovered that they had used a broken spatula to apply the wax to her eye which had caused the laceration. Our client has been left with a small scar above her eye and was awarded £4,225 compensation.

Unbeknownst to her, she was incorrectly given ear drops instead by the pharmacist. When she used the drops in her right eye that same day, she experienced a tremendous sharp pain which caused her to scream out. Our client’s right eye remained red and painful for over 2 weeks.
