Compensation for Burned Skin Following Beauty Treatment
Because my head was burned when sitting under a box dryer can I claim compensation for burned skin following beauty treatment?
You may be able to claim compensation for burned skin following beauty treatment since the stylist responsible for your treatment should have administered a better duty of care. The stylist should have made sure that you were comfortable at all times and that the dryer was fixed at an appropriate setting. If it can be proven that the hair stylist in question behaved negligently you may make a compensation claim against the hair salon.
To support your compensation for burned skin following a beauty treatment claim, you should carry out some standard procedures. Two photographs should be taken of your injury – one at close range to show the extent of the injury and another from a slight distance to demonstrate its visibility. You should also visit your GP who will be able to prescribe medication for your burns and who can record your injury in your medical history. Another advantageous procedure would be to have the details of your injury recorded in the salon’s “Accident Report Book”. You should also request a copy of this report and present it to an experienced solicitor for assessment at the initial consultation that most solicitors offer free of charge.
The assistance of a solicitor in a compensation for burned skin following beauty treatment claim would be of great benefit to ensuring its success. In the event of the hair salon admitting liability and offering you a compensation settlement before you begin legal proceedings, a solicitor could establish whether their offer sufficiently represents the amount you should justifiably qualify for. As many factors should encompass a compensation settlement, your solicitor could evaluate your case and consider important issues such as the impact your injury was had on your self-esteem and quality of life and would, therefore, be in a good position to indicate how much compensation you should receive.
