Allergic Reaction To Dye Sufferer Awarded £2,000

We were recently successful in pursuing a compensation case for a client who’d suffered an allergic reaction following a beauty treatment at a local salon, after it was established the accident happened as a result of the firm’s failure to fulfil its duty of care.

Our client had attended her local salon in May 2011 for a beauty procedure that involved getting tints added to her eyelashes and eyebrows.

However, when the dye was applied our client suffered an allergic reaction that caused serious swelling to her face and led to an eye infection. In addition to having to attend two local hospitals for medical care and attention, she also had to take a week off work due to her injuries.

Fortunately our client was aware of our expertise in beauty treatment personal injury claims and when she got in touch with us we were able to quickly establish she had a case for making a compensation claim against the beauty salon.

It transpired that although our client had been a fairly regular visitor to the salon, no appropriate patch tests had been carried out of the dye that was to be used in the treatment – and had this happened, our client’s allergy would have been detected and her suffering could have been prevented.

The team at personal injury solicitor.com swiftly obtained a witness statement from her and issued the salon with a letter of claim – and despite an initial denial, the salon soon admitted liability.

To support her case further, we arranged for a leading consultant dermatologist to examine our client. The skin specialist confirmed the allergic reaction was to a specific chemical in the dye and that the reaction could have been avoided if a patch test had been completed in the first place.

When the evidence was presented to the salon’s insurance company, a settlement was promptly agreed and there was no need to take the claim to court.

Resolved within a year and on a No Win No Fee basis, our client received £2,000 in compensation together with a full repayment of loss of earnings and associated costs that she’d incurred.
