Hair & beauty salon injury claims

Hair & beauty salon injury claims

When visiting a salon you should always expect professional treatment and care from specialists.

Salons are required to meet particular regulations controlling the storage, use and disposal of chemicals such as hair dye.

They are also required by law to ensure electrical appliances used for hair styling are regularly tested for safety.

Salons should also carry out a hair strand test where required to ensure chemicals in styling products will not harm you.

Some examples of hairdresser claims and salon negligence include:

  • Hair loss, brittle and/or thin hair.
  • Burns or blisters to the skin or scalp.
  • Reactions to chemicals or products.
  • Delayed regrowth of hair.
  • Itchy or flaky skin irritations.
  • Waxing resulting in damage to skin.
  • Eyelash treatments resulting in eye irritation.

If things have gone wrong we can help get you the compensation you deserve.

Hudgell Solicitors took my case on and my expectations were exceeded. All persons at Hudgell are professional and courteous. My claim was one against Norfolk Police. Without going into details, the Police had clearly been in the wrong and were in process of accusing me of exactly what they had actually done to me and a further cover up of the truth. Hudgell took my instructions and were in contact with me during the whole process and brought about a very satisfactory outcome. To be clear...Satisfactory is a very good outcome. I would recommend Hudgell without question. I feel I have been treated respectfully and my case notes were engrained into those at Hudgell that helped me get a conclusion to the most heinous acts from the Norfolk Police.

My brother was the victim of quite a bad motorcycle accident where he was not at fault. Sadly he only held third party cover so whilst he was in hospital I was asked by him to find a solicitor to claim against the third party. After doing some research I chose Hudgell to help us (even tho Neil Hudgell is the owner of the dreaded Hull KR and I am a massive FC fan). INITIAL CONTACT I made contact by phone and this was a simple conversation. The member of staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. All the questions I had were dealt with and I was very happy with the outcome of the call. FOLLOWING INITAL CONTACT. Within half an hour of contacting Hudgell’s a senior manager made contact with me and discussed what would happen next. Again this was very personal and really helpful. After another half an hour Sam (my brother’s now solicitor) called me. We chatted about what had happened and what he was planning to do initially. Sam was really friendly and understanding. He put me at ease right away and explained everything clearly and directly answering all questions I had. Within a week of the claim being opened Sam and Laura (Chartered Legal Executive) visited my brother in hospital. They helped put him at ease immediately and talked through what would happen, what their objectives were and also but more importantly made my brother understand that they would do everything to help him in any way he needed. After this meeting in the hospital we were happy that this claim was in safe hands. Sam the Solicitor A very friendly chap who shoots from the hip and tells you a spade is a spade. A chap who doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. A really likable man who you would want to have a pint with and we did not always look at him as the solicitor. He kept us updated at all stages and was always contactable. I did have one heated conversation with Sam BUT this was a good thing. I say this because he is very passionate about his job sometimes when a third person (me) is acting on behalf of the victim (my brother) it can be a little hard at times to please everyone. He took all we threw at him and directed us really well. Sam thank you for all your hard work, your support and the outcome. Laura Chartered Legal Executive What can I say about Laura, an absolute gem this lady is. Professional, very committed to her job, compassionate, More than helpful, caring and really cared in my opinion about my brother and his recovery. Every contact we had with Laura was amazing. She is one of those people who puts you at ease right away. Laura dealt with every problem with put at her feet, every question we had she dealt with and if she could not answer there and then she would find the answers we needed. If we had a problem she would find a solution. Again always contactable and if she could not respond immediately to a call she would call back within the business day. Laura thank you for all your hard work, Thank you for being there when we were dealing with all the problems we had. Both Sam and yourself are a credit to your company and your profession. The service provided by Hudgell’s far exceeded what we expected. If you need the services Hudgell provides then I would highly recommend your choice of solicitors is this company.

I was represented/instructed by Mobeena Salim, who was always available when i wanted to discuss my case, which was reassuring and comforting. We were able to pressure the defendants who eventually agreed to settle and this meant we did not have the drawn out court process! Overall, i am happy with the service, only criticism is that i feel we could have settled a higher amonut if we continued negotiations. Would use this firm again! Thanks for everything.

I am sorry but the person's name that dealt with me who was admin was Natasha - my name is definitely not Natalie but obviously it shows how much attention you pay to people's particulars and case details. So sorry not interested in your services - as previously mentioned when it comes to medical negligence, you are impersonal, inefficient and inaccurate. Also the comment went on TP on the 22nd March and you provided yet another generic response on the 2nd April.

How can I make a hair and beauty personal injury claim?

Anyone wishing to make a claim against a hairdresser or beauty salon has up to three years from their knowledge of the injury occurring to make a claim.

But in cases of this type where physical evidence may be very important the sooner action is taken the better.

Depending on the injury in question, aside from the time, date and venue you visited, other useful information to provide includes:

  • Details of the person or business considered to be responsible.
  • Any receipts, appointment cards or reports from the business.
  • Evidence of the injuries suffered (photos if applicable).
  • Information on any additional medical advice or treatment obtained as a result.
  • Evidence of the complaint made to those thought to be at fault.

How is compensation for a personal injury calculated?

If you have been the victim of a hair or beauty treatment gone wrong, you may have a strong claim for compensation.

A personal injury can be extremely distressing and damaging to those involved, and you may have a good chance of receiving an award that reflects the pain, suffering and practical setbacks you have experienced.

The extent of your injuries will all be taken into account when considering your case, as will the potential losses you are likely to suffer as a direct result of the incident.

Examples of factors affecting compensation awards:

  • The physical pain, discomfort and inconvenience caused by the injury.
  • The mental suffering experienced, including anxiety, distress and embarrassment.
  • Loss of capability and independence, or newfound difficulty in completing day-to-day tasks due to sensory impairment.
  • Accrued costs relating to subsequent medical treatment, including travel to and from appointments.
  • Missed personal opportunities, such as holidays or other events that have to be cancelled as a result of the incident.
  • Costs associated with lifestyle changes that need to be made to help the affected individual adjust to a long-term injury.

Ultimately, the best way to find out how much compensation you could be entitled to is to get in touch with our expert personal injury solicitors and discuss the details of your case as soon as possible.
