Cosmetic procedure injury claims

Cosmetic procedure injury compensation

If a cosmetic, beauty or spa treatment goes wrong it may mean personal injury results from this.

When visiting a beautician you should always expect professional treatment and care from qualified and trained specialists.

Salons are required to meet regulations controlling the use of specialist equipment and the storage, use and disposal of chemicals.

They are also required by law to ensure electrical appliances are regularly tested and working properly.

Salons should also carry out skin patch tests to ensure chemicals and electrical equipment will not damage or burn you.

Good industry practice recommends a 45 minute consultation should also be carried out before a procedure.

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


What is a cosmetic procedures injury?

What is a cosmetic procedures injury?

The provider of your cosmetic procedure must deliver a standard that is reasonable.

So if, for example, you are not given a patch test before a chemical product is applied to your hair or body and you react badly, this is classed as personal injury.

Some examples of cosmetic procedure negligence include:

  • Skin and scalp burns or blisters.
  • Reactions to chemicals or products.
  • Delayed regrowth of hair.
  • Itchy or flaky skin irritations.
  • Waxing resulting bleaching and or burns to skin.
  • Laser treatment injuries.
  • Eye injuries as a result of eyelash treatments.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

How can I make a compensation claim for a cosmetic procedure?

Anyone wishing to make a claim against a salon or spa 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 calculated?

If you have been the victim of a cosmetic procedure 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.
