Claim for skin blistering after beauty treatment in a salon

Recently, while I was having my hair straightened in a salon using hair relaxers, I felt a burning sensation in my scalp, the stylist told me this was normal, but there are now blisters across my scalp. Am I eligible to claim for skin blistering after beauty treatment in a salon?

You may be eligible to make a compensation claim for skin blistering after beauty treatment in a salon if your stylist fails to conduct a patch test to investigate for any reaction from your skin to the product.

This must always be carried out before any potentially hazardous products are used on your hair and it will not be a defence for the stylist to say the product was previously tested on your if no skin test was carried out on this occasion.

Photographs of your injury should be taken, both close up and from a distance and you should seek immediate professional medical attention to ensure your injury is recorded in your medical history as it will substantiate any claim for skin blistering after beauty treatment in a salon.

It is best advised that you speak with a solicitor about the amount of compensation you may be entitled to claim for skin blistering after beauty treatment in a salon as it is possible the salon may offer you a direct offer of compensation when you return to record the incident in their ‘Accident Report Book’.

Any offer you receive should be referred to a personal injury claims solicitor, generally solicitors in the UK offer a free consultation service for injury claims, therefore you will be able to ascertain the value of your compensation claim for skin blistering after beauty treatment in a salon and determine if it is worth your while pursuing a claim without making any financial commitments.
