Manicures, pedicures, waxing, bleaching, eyelash extensions, fake tan – the list of beauty treatments available in salons goes on and on. How often do you go to the beauty salon for regular treatments? Most of us have a favourite salon we love to go to – but have you ever stopped to think about the injuries you could sustain in a beauty salon? Whilst most salons are of a high standard and offer excellent services, a negligent salon owner could result in you being injured. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim personal injury compensation if you have suffered minor or serious injuries after a beauty treatment has gone wrong. Our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you can afford to make a claim even if you have blown your budget at the salon.
Beauty salon accidents and injuries
Poorly trained staff, defective equipment or an unhygienic environment could all lead to you being injured whilst at the beauty salon. Here are just a few examples of the types of injuries you could sustain in a beauty salon:
- Burns from waxing
- Allergic reaction to dye or other chemicals, if no patch test is carried out
- Infection from unhygienic environment or equipment
- Slip, trip or fall injuries – for example after slipping on a wet floor
- Loss of eyelashes or eyebrows after a reaction to chemicals
Some injuries could lead to facial or body scarring which can affect the rest of your life. A serious allergic reaction could mean time off work spent recovering in hospital – and if the salon failed to carry out a patch test, they could be held liable for your injuries. It’s not unheard of to develop an infection after a bikini wax in an unhygienic salon – which may need treatment with antibiotics and can be very unpleasant and painful. If you’ve been injured due to salon negligence, we can help you claim personal injury compensation.
Why should you make a claim?
When you pay for treatment at a beauty salon, you expect to receive a certain level of service. If you don’t receive the service you expect, and you are injured as a result of staff negligence, you’re entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and you could get confidential, no-obligation advice or get the ball rolling on your personal injury claim.
