Claims for beauty treatment injury compensation are on the rise. When you undergo a cosmetic procedure you have the right to expect that the therapist is paying the proper attention to safeguarding your health and safety. If they do not take the proper precautions or carry out procedures they are not properly qualified to perform, and this results in an injury, you can claim for compensation. Here are some of the reasons why people make beauty treatment injury claims – and what you can do if you have suffered in the beauty salon.
1. Hair Dye Injury
Hair dye can cause a severe allergic reaction since the chemicals in hair dye are strong and powerful. You may experience a burn to the scalp, or hair loss as a result of the application of the hair dye. A patch test should be carried out before the dye is applied, and the dye should always be left on for precisely the right amount of time.
2. Hair Extension Problems
When you get hair extensions put into your hair you are at risk of hair loss if the extensions are added in too tightly. You may be allergic to the hair extension chemicals. There must be a good level of skill involved in administering the extensions as they can easily cause problems. You may experience burns, scalp irritation, hair follicle damage, or an allergic reaction.
3. Hot Stone Massage Injury
The obvious injury here is as a result of the stone being too hot. This can cause burns and scarring. It is a problem that is easily avoided, which is why negligence is often the cause of these beauty treatment injuries.
4. Eyelash Treatment Claims
Treatments are available for eyelashes which involve extensions, tinting, dying, or implants. There are risks of infection, skin irritation, chemical burns, blistering, allergic reactions, and even blindness when these eyelash treatments are not administered correctly.
5. Nail Bar Issues
Getting a manicure or pedicure can result in injury or infection. You may end up with a nail problem that persists, including a problem with fungal infection or suffer an allergic reaction to the chemicals used.
If you experience any of these problems after treatment, or you suffer another type of injury after a visit to the salon, consult with beauty treatment solicitors who will be able to advise you on your right to make a treatment claim. If you have been injured and it was not your fault, you have the right to make a claim for compensation to redress the damage caused by your injuries.
