Beautician Negligence Claims
When you visit a specialist beauty salon or clinic, you expect your treatment to be delivered to a high standard by a fully trained professional.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case and beautician negligence can leave you with physical injuries and even emotional trauma. If you’ve suffered after receiving a beauty treatment or cosmetic procedure, our expert team may be able to help.
Beauticians are legally bound to meet certain regulations controlling the use, storage and disposal of chemical products. Likewise, they are required to ensure that all electrical equipment is fit for use and is regularly tested under health and safety law. If these standards are not met, and you have suffered as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.
