If you regularly visit hair or beauty salons or even enjoy a spa treatment every now and then, you probably feel completely comfortable in the hands of these professionals, and feel secure that they know how to keep you safe. However, things can still go wrong at salons and spas and, if you are having certain treatments, accidents can mean serious injuries and permanent scarring. If you are injured in a salon or spa, you have the option of using solicitors in Sutton Weaver to make a compensation claim against the person that caused your injury. Here are some of the things that you can claim for.
Any beauty therapist or hairdresser knows that they have to do a sensitivity test for certain procedures and products. If your therapist tries to save time by avoiding this process and leaves you with a painful allergic reaction, you should be able to make a claim for compensation against them.
You can be burned by hot water, wax for waxing treatments or even hot stones as part of a massage. It is your therapist’s job to keep an eye on the temperature of whatever materials they are working with and to ensure that you are safe and comfortable at all times. Burns are among the most painful of all injuries.
This could be from burns or from any procedure that has been botched by the therapist. Scarring is something that lasts for a long time, and often forever, so you should be able to get a much higher compensation payout for scarring, as it will affect you for the rest of your life and may affect the way you look. Scarring to the face can turn the most extrovert of people into a recluse, as they can become ashamed of how they appear to others.
This would include ill-applied permanent makeup, over processing of hair which causes it to fall out or need to be cut off and so on. If you are placed with a trainee or someone who has not performed this procedure before, this is more likely to happen.
