Laser hair removal has emerged as an extremely popular cosmetic procedure designed to remove unwanted body hair. This quick and easy method is favoured among many people due to its convenience and effectiveness.
In most cases, laser hair removal procedures will be carried out without any issues, but in some instances, improper methods used by practitioners can leave customers with a serious injury.
If you have been injured at the hands of a professional who failed to carry out the procedure correctly, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. At Lupton Fawcett, our dedicated solicitors are on hand to help you through this stressful time, and we are dedicated to helping you get the justice you deserve.
What are the risks?
To many, laser hair removal may seem like a risk-free treatment. However, if it is not carried out correctly, the procedure can cause severe injuries, causing extreme distress for the victim.
Like many other beauty treatments. the main risks of laser hair removal are skin damage and burns. Although this is rare, this could happen if a technician uses a laser incorrectly, or if a piece of equipment fails.
At Lupton Fawcett, we have dealt with many different types of claim in this area, including:
- Skin burns
- Excessive hair removal
While these are the most common types of claim, they are not the only types of injury caused by improper laser hair removal. If your case is different, you can still get in touch with us to discuss your situation.
About professional negligence claims
Claiming compensation for professional negligence does not mean you are taking from a company’s own funds. Businesses are legally required to have insurance in place to protect themselves in case of incidents such as these. Therefore, you should not feel guilty about proceeding with your case. If the business you are claiming against does not have insurance, the legal process becomes trickier. However, this is not your problem, and should not stop you from pursuing your claim.
If your claim is successful, the money you are given will come from an insurance policy, and not the back pocket of the individual, body or business you have made your claim against.
Why should I claim?
The compensation you receive is designed to help you return to normality as soon as possible after a stressful incident has taken place.
If you have been left with injuries so severe that you cannot work, it is likely you will have no other source of income. So, claiming for compensation can help you pay the bills and lead a normal life until you are back on your feet.
In most professional negligence cases, the applicable limitation period is six years from the date the incident took place. However, this may be extended when the negligence only becomes apparent at a later date.
It is best to act as quickly as possible after the date an incident takes place. Victims of professional negligence are therefore urged to seek legal advice as soon as they discover what has happened.
