If you have suffered an injury from cosmetic surgery or beauty treatments due to the negligence of staff at a beauty salon, making a beauty injury claim could help to compensate for the pain caused and help you as you deal with the after-effects of the injury.
All medical practitioners have a duty of care to their patients which includes taking all reasonable checks and precautions to ensure safety and best or intended outcomes. There should be full and frank consultation processes to give the patient all possible information at the outset before any procedure is undertaken and the patient should know what to expect of any surgery or treatment and what to expect afterwards including proper aftercare. If a medical practitioner or treatment provider has breached their duty of care and has been negligent before, during or after surgery or treatment and the patient has suffered in consequence there may be a compensation claim against the provider as a result. There may be issues with product or implant safety, negligent counselling, negligent technique or negligent aftercare or more besides.
Surgery must be performed by a qualified surgeon but there is no common “cosmetic surgery” qualification. A lot of procedures are non-surgical and a lot of the industry is unregulated. Unregulated fillers in particular are exempt from almost any product safety regulation in the UK. Non-surgical procedures can be effectively undertaken by anyone irrespective of their experience, knowledge or training. Problems therefore can unfortunately be common. Negligent surgery or cosmetic treatment can have serious and life-changing effects.
More and more people are undergoing a wide range of beauty treatments or cosmetic procedures. We expect treatments to be carried out to a standard that ensures customers are not injured. However, sometimes accidents do occur because of improper training or lack of attention. These injuries can be painful and even disfiguring.
Symptoms of botched treatment can include rashes, burns and scarring. If errors on the part of your beauty therapist have left you injured, you will have a viable claim and we will help you get the compensation you deserve.
