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.
