Have you been hurt in a public place in Ealing? Come to harm due to using cosmetics?
The UK beauty and cosmetics industry is worth billions of pounds a year. Over the years, both women and men have been convinced of the need to spend a fair old chunk of their disposable income on potions and lotions to make themselves look younger and more attractive. Pharmacy and supermarket shelves are crammed full of products that promise to help consumers peel away the years and make buyers look more alluring. We are here to help if you’ve been hurt in a public place in Ealing or have come to harm after using cosmetics products you thought were safe.
People place a lot of trust in the companies that make these products. Not only do consumers take these firms at their word that these items actually do what they say they do, but they also trust them not to sell them anything that could do them any harm. Unfortunately though, mistakes can be made. Sometimes, cosmetic items can be made incorrectly, or foreign bodies can get into a product. If you’ve been in any way hurt by a dodgy cosmetic product, you’ll need to seek the advice of good injury solicitors, or elsewhere across the UK to find out if you might have a case for compensation against the cosmetic company.
If you have a strange reaction after using a cosmetic product, perhaps you’ve come out in a nasty rash or been badly burned, don’t automatically assume that it was an allergic reaction. There could be a chance that you have bought a defective product that has been badly made. If you have, you might be able to use an injury solicitor to launch a personal injury case against the manufacturer of the product in question. You’ll need to seek medical attention immediately, and retain the product in question for your personal injury lawyer to use as evidence in court.
You may also be able to sue if you buy a cosmetic product that has a foreign body such as glass in it. It doesn’t take too much imagination to picture what could happen if a face cream contained fragments of glass, far less a vitamin tablet that claimed it had age reversing properties. Again, if this happens to you, you’ll need to seek medical attention and retain the product itself to be used as evidence for your personal injury claim.
