Laser technology has long been used for cosmetic and surgical procedures, and this includes a non-surgical procedure such as laser hair removal. Laser hair removal treatments have gained in popularity since they are not painful and can result in the long-term prevention of hair growth. If a person undergoes laser hair removal treatment several times, it can even result in the permanent prevention of hair growth. But if you have suffered an injury because of laser hair removal, you need to seek help from the experts so you can file a claim for compensation.
The common injuries and claims with laser hair removal treatment
The most common injury associated with laser hair removal treatment is a laser burn, which can range from minor to serious. Blisters are quite common as well, and so are laser burn scars and marks. If a procedure is done near the eyes, it can also result in injuries to the cornea such as corneal ulcers. Other common injuries due to laser hair removal treatments include hyper-pigmentation (when the skin becomes darker), infections, the uneven appearance of the skin, and even a reduction in muscle tone.
How a solicitor can be your right partner when claiming compensation
For many of us, dealing with claims (and the law in general) can be a tricky matter. After all, we don’t have enough experience to really know what is required in order to claim compensation. But this is where the expertise of a solicitor, especially a solicitor with ample experience in personal injury claims, can come in.
The solicitor can offer invaluable advice as to whether or not you really have a claim for compensation. They will analyse your case and determine if you have the right to make a claim. If they agree that you can claim compensation from the technician or beauty salon or centre, then they will help you gather all the evidence you need to make your claim as solid as possible. This includes helping you get the medical assessment required from a medical professional, helping you gather all the other documents you need to file the claim, and more. There is a certain procedure which needs to be followed when it comes to making a claim for compensation, and the solicitor will be able to help you with this.
The good news is that in almost all cases of personal injury, solicitors work on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that the solicitor will not get paid unless you get your compensation. If you do not receive compensation, then the solicitor will not be paid either. This is why solicitors closely and carefully analyse each and every personal injury claim and will only move forward if they know you have a good case.
