About Beauty Injury Claims

Suffering an accident at a beauticians or hairdressers can be caused by almost anything, including faulty equipment, overheating wax, patch tests having not been carried out properly or wearing the correct protection. Unfortunately, as this industry is unregulated people having treatment are often victims of poor quality service or products.

Who is responsible?

If you have suffered an accident that was not your fault and could have been avoided, liability would lie with the beautician because it is their legal responsibility to ensure all clients are protected while carrying out their duties. This includes performing adequate training, maintaining equipment used at a salon and ensuring that the environment you are having your treatment in is safe, secure and hazard free.

Making a claim for compensation

A claim can be made if you have suffered an accident or injury at a beauticians or hairdressers. There is a strict three-year time limit for pursuing compensation, which usually begins from the day of the accident. However, because some symptoms do not always present themselves right away, this limit may begin from the date you knew the injury was related to treatment you received.

To make a successful claim, you need to prove that the accident/injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, whether it was your beautician or the beautician’s assistant. Don’t forget, the beautician will have insurance to cover them for accidents like this. This is where Aequitas Legal comes in.

"Process was made simple"

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.

"Kept updated regularly "

Aequitas Legal, a very professional company from Katie who helped with my initial inquiry to Suzanne, the solicitor, who handled my case. I was kept updated regularly on all aspects and developments and given sound advice regarding my claim. I particularly liked using the App on my mobile which was full of useful information. Great customer service with prompt responses to questions and queries, I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for a quick and easy settlement.
