What is a beauty treatment negligence claim?
The hair and beauty sector is made up of beauty salons, nail bars, hair salons, spas, masseurs, tanning salons, eyelash technicians, makeup artists and those who specialise in the application of permanent makeup.
The applicable Health and Safety qualifications go up to Level 4. With an estimated 50% of the hundreds of thousands employed by the beauty treatment industry being qualified only to Level 2, MG Legal’s specialist beauty treatment solicitors are well aware that beauty treatments are undertaken, with the beauty therapist, not being qualified to the appropriate standard to carry out the procedure.
With very little to govern the beauty treatment industry, and more and more beauty treatments, and cosmetic surgery procedures being carried out each year, compensation claims are on the rise and the following list of treatments are some of most common to injure clients:
Can I make a personal injury compensation claim if my beauty treatment was negligent?
Yes, you can. If you’ve been to a beauty salon and suffered an injury during or after the beauty treatment because the salon has been negligent then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against them.
Like any service you receive, when your beautician treats you, they are providing a service, and you are receiving a service, subject to the Sale of Goods and Services Act 1982. With this is mind, the service provide must be supplied with reasonable skill and care. If the treatment is not carried out with reasonable skill and care, and injury follows, during or after the procedure, they you can make a claim for personal injury compensation.

How much is my injury claim worth?
The amount of compensation you will receive all depends on how you were injured, and how the injuries have affected your life. Any beauty injury claim is a claim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, thus meaning that every single person, may suffer differently even though they have sustained the same injury. From facial injuries meaning you can’t go out because you’re too embarrassed, or simply cannot as your skin now burns in the sun, or a chemical dye has made it so you physically cannot open your eyes. Subject to this, the amount of personal injury compensation each injured person receives would reflect their own circumstances, and be different.
If you have been injured, and have ongoing losses, for example, if you are injured and unable to carry on working MG Legal can request an interim payment enabling you to recover, without facing the stress of not being able to pay your monthly bills.
MG Legal’s expert team of personal injury solicitors value all personal injury claims with reference to the 15th edition of the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines, and then research every client’s individual circumstances, so they receive the maximum personal injury compensation they deserve.
