I had an accident in a beauty salon when I tripped over the electrical cord of the hairdryer being used on the person next to me and sprained my wrist when I fell. The beauty salon has offered me 500 Pounds in compensation. Should I accept it?
How much compensation for an accident in a beauty salon you would be entitled to if you were to go through the process of making a beauty salon accident claim is going to depend on the severity of your injury and the impact it has on your quality of life.
Some people can “carry on as normal” with a sprained wrist when the ligaments of the wrist have only been over-stretched, whereas chronic wrist sprains – when the ligaments have torn – can take months to heal, completely incapacitate a person and lead to health problems later in life.
Compensation for an accident in a beauty salon should not only account for the physical cost of an injury, but also the financial cost. Therefore, if you have had to take unpaid time off from work due to your accident in a beauty salon, you can recover any lost income in a claim for a beauty salon accident.
You would be best advised to speak directly with a beauty salon claims solicitor to discuss the severity of your wrist sprain injury and the effect it has had on your ability to perform day-to-day tasks and enjoy your regular leisure and social activities.
The solicitor will advise you whether you have a claim for an accident in a beauty salon which is worth your while to pursue and, once an assessment of your claim has been made, inform you how much compensation for an accident in a beauty salon you may be entitled to receive.
With this information – and dependent on your relationship with the beauty salon – you should be able to determine whether to accept the offer of beauty salon accident compensation made to you after your accident or if you should make a claim for an accident in a beauty salon against the salon´s public liability insurers.
