I currently have a rash on both my legs which I believe is due to the cellulite treatment I recently had. What are the common factors that can affect claims for an allergic reaction during cellulite treatment?
The circumstances surrounding your injury, the extent and severity of the injuries sustained and the effect they have on your personal life are all factors that can affect claims for an allergic reaction during cellulite treatment. Your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident will also be accounted for when deciding the amount of compensation you are entitled to claim.
Of course before considering these elements it must be established if you are entitled to claim compensation for your allergic reaction. You must demonstrate that the clinic where the procedure was performed is responsible for your injuries and you should note that clinics are required to conduct a medical consultation before performing any treatment that may carry a risk of injury.
A skin test should also have been carried out to ensure you were not allergic to the products being used for your cellulite treatment. If either of these were absent from your claim or if you can prove that the practitioner who administered your treatment was negligent through inadequate training for the task or by producing a poor professional performance which resulted in your injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
In claims for an allergic reaction during cellulite treatment it is advised that you seek professional medical treatment for your injury and also take photographs of your injury as you will be able to use these to support your claim for compensation.
It is also advised that you make a note of your injury in the clinic’s ‘Accident Report Book’ which should include your doctor´s diagnosis of your injury and the reason for it occurring. At this point it is recommended that you speak with a personal injury claims solicitor as they will be able to evaluate your compensation claim and advise if it is worthwhile pursuing.
