Hertfordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors
As a nation, we take pride in our appearance and the way we look and many of us visit beauty salons, hairdressers and nail bars on a regular basis to ensure that we’re not only happy with the way we look but project the image we want to.
For the vast majority of the time, we leave the professionals looking and feeling exactly as we were hoping and although things rarely go wrong, they are more often than not minor inconveniences rather than disasters.
However, accidents can happen especially in places where chemicals are being used and if you have received injuries as the result of the wrongful or negligent use of chemicals in a beauty salon you have the right to claim compensation through Hertfordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors.
Beauty and the Beast
Beauty salons use chemicals for a wide variety of treatments:
- Hair colouring
- Straightening and perming
- Facial treatments and peels
- Nail extensions
For the vast majority of the time, the technicians using these chemicals are highly trained and professional, knowing how to apply these chemicals and how to use them safely. In addition, for treatments such as hair colouring, the majority of salons offer a skin test prior to treatment to ensure that their client will not have an allergic reaction.
However, despite the above, incidents of chemical burning do happen and in this event, Hertfordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors could ensure that compensation is made available to the victim.
Chemical burns can be exceptionally painful and can leave permanent scarring as well as creating psychological trauma in the victim who expected to leave the salon feeling confident and happy rather than in excruciating pain.
The after effects of a chemical burn could be medical treatment to treat the injuries, being forced to take time away from work to recover from those injuries, financial losses due to prescriptions and in severe cases, operations such as skin grafts to treat scarring.
In addition, a victim could need counselling to cope with the after effects of their accident and any major injuries they have as the result of a chemical burn.
In many cases, a burn at a beauty salon is an accident but given that we entrust our health and safety to the people who work in these salons, if an incident happens, it is a comfort to know than Hertfordshire ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors can seek compensation on behalf of a victim.
