Cosmetic claims can be due to either surgical procedures or non-invasive procedures.
Common causes of non-invasive injury:
Beauty treatments are widely available in the UK. Many women and an increasing number of men visit beauty salons regularly to treat themselves to various instant pick-me-ups such as; Botox injections, lip fillers, brow shaping, waxing, laser hair removal, eyelash extensions and false nails. Although these procedures are non-invasive and often completely harmless they can sometimes go wrong resulting in nasty injuries.
Some common reasons to make a cosmetic claim of this nature are:
- Hair dye allergy
- Waxing burns
- Laser hair removal scarring
- Lip fillers
Common causes of cosmetic surgery claims:
Cosmetic surgery is a rapidly growing industry, with its popularity increasing year on year. Over 45,000 people in the UK have plastic surgery each year, and unfortunately with the rise in numbers come a rise in cosmetic negligence claims. Those who carry out cosmetic procedures have a duty of care to their patients and if they fall below the expected standard of care, then you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
