In recent years there has been a sharp increase in the number beauty treatment compensation claims being made. What should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience can sometimes turn to disaster, causing considerable distress and embarrassment.
Accidents that occur at the hairdressers or beauty salon are often the result of chemicals or faulty equipment and can cause injuries such as:
- Allergic reactions
One of the most common beauty treatment injuries involves hair removal. A recent study showed that between 2002 and 2010 there was a 50% increase in the number of women attending hospital with cuts and infections caused by personal grooming, with the recent introduction of ‘Brazilians’ and ‘Vajazzles’ having a major impact.
Hair removal claim case study
What’s My Claim Worth recently recovered compensation for a client who sustained personal injuries after a leg wax treatment.
During the course of the treatment, a section of skin (measuring approximately 2“ x 0.5”) was torn off the client’s skin as the therapist removed the wax strip.
Although our client’s wound soon healed, she was left with a large and unsightly permanent scar. As a result of this, we were able to successfully recover £3,250 in compensation for our client.
