Question:

How much compensation for burns during cellulite treatment should I be able to receive if I suffered burns to my thigh from the electrical equipment that have left scars on my leg and mean that I can no longer wear short skirts?

Answer:

“Eporex” electrical cellulite treatment, although not a surgical treatment, should be performed with the same care as any surgery. If you have sustained burn injuries due to the negligence of the beautician who was performing the treatment, you will be entitled to claim compensation for burns during cellulite treatment.

How much compensation for burns during a cellulite treatment you are entitled to is going to depend on the location and extent of your injury, how much pain you suffered when you received the burns and during your recovery, and the impact that the scarring has made to your quality of life.

A solicitor compiling a claim for burns during cellulite treatment will take into account your age and general state of health before the burn injury was sustained and also the emotional trauma you have suffered due to the beautician´s negligence. You will also be able to recover any expenses you have incurred in pursuit of medical treatment or as a direct result of the injuries you sustained.

In respect of compensation for not being able to wear short skirts, this comes under both the deterioration in your quality of life and emotional trauma. It is recommended that you maintain a diary to record the occasions on which you would have chosen to wear a short skirt were it not for your injury and how not being able to dress as you wished made you feel.

In order to provide you with an accurate figure of how much compensation for burns during cellulite treatment you may be entitled to receive, it would be in your best interests to speak with a solicitor at the earliest possible opportunity. A solicitor will conduct a full assessment of your claim and inform you of what an appropriate settlement would amount to.
