Will I have to pay to claim?
We believe No Win No Fee claims should be available to as many people as possible, so you won't be asked to pay money out of your own pocket. You only may pay a fee if you win the compensation you deserve. Most customers tell us they prefer the peace of mind this gives them, which is why 98% of our client's cases are No Win No Fee claims.
Will I have to have a medical for my beauty treatment claim?
This all depends on the type of injury. If you suffer a beauty treatment injury that causes redness, swelling, infection or another injury for just a few days, getting photographic evidence is very important. Where the harm is more lasting, you may be asked to see a medical expert who will provide the evidence needed to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Will I have to go to court for a beauty treatment injury claim?
Some beauty treatment injury cases do end up in court, if the therapist or salon disagrees that they caused your injury. But, in most cases, beauty treatment compensation claims are handled between your lawyer and the therapist or salon's insurance company, so you probably wouldn't have to go to court.
What sort of beauty treatment injuries can I claim for?
Beauty treatments now include a number of cosmetic procedures that can cause injuries where they are not done properly, or where an infection results, including:
- Reactions to botox
- Excessive lip filling
- Permanent make-up mistakes
- Burns from chemical peels
- Burns from hair dyes
- Burns from tanning beds
- Infections from unsterilised piercing needles
- Allergic reactions to dyes and waxes
So if your visit to a beauty salon or therapist caused pain or injury, you may be entitled to make a No Win No Fee claim for compensation.
What can I claim for?
If you have been injured as the result of a beauty treatment and someone else was at fault, your claim could cover all of these things:
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Plastic surgery
- Medical treatment
While minor injuries may only affect you for a few days or weeks, they still deserve financial compensation where your beautician or therapist was at fault. And where you have been permanently disfigured through someone else's fault, you have every right to claim substantial compensation.
Who's to blame for my beauty treatment injuries?
Every beauty shop and therapist has to carry insurance to cover the cost of any illness or injury that occurs to their clients. After all, many of the procedures they offer - especially those involving needles and injections – can be dangerous if not done correctly.
So if a beauty treatment has caused you an injury in the last three years, you may have a claim against the shop or the therapist. In either case, talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
