Our specialist team of lawyers dealing with cosmetic surgery compensation claims are often called upon to deal with burns caused by beauty treatments.
Beauty treatment burns most commonly arise from procedures that involve waxing, chemical peels and hair treatments. The use of lasers can also cause burns.
One of the main causes of injury is where the beauty treatment is carried out by staff who are not properly trained and basic safety protocols (such as patch testing) are not followed. Burns can also arise when faulty equipment or defective products are used.
Where burns caused by beauty treatments do occur then you may be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries.
We specialise in beauty treatment claims and work on a No Win, No Fee basis.
You can contact us for a free assessment of your potential claim. Our specialist lawyers will review the circumstances that led to you suffering a burn and offer guidance on whether you are entitled to recover compensation.
The amount of compensation that can be claimed is based on the severity of your injuries and the impact they have on your life. For instance, where burns have resulted in scarring then if that scarring is likely to be permanent then the compensation will reflect that. The location of any scarring will also be relevant when assessing compensation, with facial scars attracting higher sums than scarring to less visible parts of the body. Consideration will also be given to the psychological impact of the injury
In addition to receiving compensation for the injury itself, you are also entitled to recover any financial losses you have incurred such as lost earnings or the cost of medical treatment.
