Beauty treatment accident, negligence & injury compensation claims

If you've suffered an injury or illness as a result of a beauty treatment that hasn't gone to plan, you may be entitled to make a beauty treatment negligence claim. At Stephensons, our experienced beauty treatment negligence solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation for the pain, suffering and any financial losses you've incurred as a result of the beauty treatment if the service provided to you was negligent. We understand the distress and inconvenience that can come with a beauty treatment gone wrong, and we're here to support you every step of the way.

The beauty industry is booming, and worryingly you currently need absolutely no qualifications to administer dermal injections, botox, or to inject a client’s face with semi permanent make up pigmentation, and there is little regulation in this type of industry. In addition to a potential lack of qualifications, a beauty therapist can obtain these products online from unlicensed sources, and with no real knowledge of what those products contain.

Our cosmetic product injury compensation solicitors have considerable knowledge and experience handling beauty treatment compensation claims and can help if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation. If you would like to speak to a member of the team about a beauty treatment negligence claim call us on 0161 696 6235 or complete our online enquiry form and we will contact you directly.

Examples of cases our beauty treatment injury specialists have dealt with:

Injured at beauty salon

Our personal injury claims team recently settled a case for a claimant who had sustained injury due to a negligent beauty treatment at a beauty salon.

The claimant attended a beauty salon in order to undergo a back cleanse treatment which involved the use of a steamer. The claimant underwent a massage and was then left alone whilst the steamer was being used. After around five minutes, the claimant’s back started to become uncomfortably hot as so she tried to cover herself with a towel. As she was doing so, the steamer fell off its stand and landed on the massage bed.

The claimant sustained burns to her back which left a circular scar of 3.5 x 3.2cm in her left lumbar region. The claimant’s burn was managed conservatively with dressings and took three weeks to heal. The expert opinion was that the scar would fade but remain visible in social situations if the claimant was wearing a swimming costume or a low back dress.

After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the beauty salon owners, the case was settled and the claimant received £5,000 compensation. 

Injured at health club

Our personal injury claims team settled a case for a claimant who had sustained injury due to receiving a massage treatment on a defective bed.

The claimant attended at Donnington Valley Health Club as her children had bought her a type of aqua massage treatment, a hydrotherm massage as a surprise. The massage required the claimant to lie on a hot ‘lilo’ type bed and where she then received a manual massage. The full body massage lasted for one hour. The claimant noted that the bed was too hot when she began the massage; however she was advised that her body would get used to it and so she proceeded with the massage. It was later in the evening when the claimant noticed that her back and buttocks were particularly red.

The claimant suffered thermal burns across the whole of her back and buttocks. Due to the claimant’s injuries, for the first two to three weeks she was in a lot of pain so had trouble sleeping. The expert opinion was that the claimant would recover completely from her injuries four weeks post accident.

After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the property owners, the case was settled and the claimant received £1,350 compensation.
