Beauty treatment gone wrong?!
There are beauty clinics and spas across the country, the majority of which are high quality establishments, run and operated by highly qualified beauty therapists. In fact, the beauty and hairdressing professions have some of the highest standards when it comes to training.
Not surprising when you consider the amount of chemicals used in a variety of treatments, from nail glue to the various facial treatments, from facials through to procedures such as dermal fillers etc.
No one likes to think of going for a well-earned beauty treatment, only to be hurt or injured and needing the help of not only a medical professional, but also a lawyer in Heywood.
How do you know our lawyer in Heywood can help?
You will need to know if you are entitled to claim compensation, as well as how much you could also claim. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have helped many customers make claims for chemical burns, for example, from the use of hair dye in hairdressing salons, as well as other injuries incurred as part of beauty treatments.
As with all compensation cases undertaken by our lawyer in Heywood, there are several factors that need to be present for a potential successful claim…
With injuries or burns as a result of a botched beauty treatment, we need to ensure that the salon, spa or clinic are liable for your injury. For example, if the person performing the treatment was not qualified to dispense or use it, then you have a potential case for compensation with a lawyer in Heywood… BUT, if you failed to disclose that you have a reaction previously to a certain brand or treatment, then your claim is not valid.
Most spas, clinics and salons have strict policies when it comes to collecting information on their clients and so you need to be confident that you completed this process accurately.
Seeking medical attention
As with all claims, your lawyer in Heywood will need to be confident you sought medical attention and also received treatment for your injuries and symptoms. His is an essential part of making a claim – there is no room for self-medication or diagnosis when it comes to make a compensation claim!
Take photographs of your injuries, if possible, to show the extent of the burns or injuries you received.
There is a 3 year deadline within which you must make a claim for compensation but, with this type of injury, our lawyer in Heywood suggests that you start your claim as soon as possible.
