Hurt in a Salon? Female Lawyers Offer Free Advice

Compensation For Beauty Therapist Injured At Work

Ms S was working as a trainee beauty therapist at a salon during her summer holidays, when she was injured through no fault of her own during the course of her work. A colleague was walking towards Ms S carrying a pot of hot wax when she stumbled on the corner of a chair, falling forwards, and splashing the wax onto Ms S’s bare forearm.

Ms S suffered second degree burns right the way up her arm and was taken to hospital, where she was treated with soothing gel, antihistamines and painkillers, before the wound was dressed. She was forced to take 3 weeks off work, and subsequently left her job to return to college. Her arm was still discoloured as a result of her burn injury 6 months later, and apart from the physical pain she had suffered, this caused her profound embarrassment and emotional distress.

  • Our Legal Advice
After contacting Bartletts for legal advice, Ms S decided to make a claim against the beauty salon’s parent company. We wrote to them, pointing out that employers are responsible for the negligent behaviour of their workers, and in this instance Ms S’s colleague had clearly not been paying sufficient attention at the time of the accident. The chair should also not have been in path of Ms S’s colleague, who was walking towards our client carrying a pot of extremely hot wax. In these circumstances it was reasonably foreseeable that she would trip and splash the wax onto Ms S who was standing in front of her. After 6 months of correspondence we were able to win an admission of liability from the salon’s insurers, and our client later received a cheque for £3,500 in compensation for her injury.
