Lady Claims For Badly Performed Lower Half Leg Wax

Case Study - Burn From Spilled Hot Wax

Ms A was having a routine lower half leg waxing treatment at a health and beauty spa, when she was burned by hot wax that was spilled onto her skin by the beautician carrying out the procedure. She was in a lot of pain, and saw her GP later that day, who dressed the wound and prescribed painkillers. Ms A has dark skin pigmentation, and unfortunately, as the burn healed, the skin around it became pink and discoloured. Many months later Ms A is considering complicated skin graft surgery, as the only option to make her lower leg appear normal again. Ms A complained to the beauty spa directly, but did not receive a satisfactory response. She was angry and upset she had been injured through on fault of her own, and decided to seek legal advice.

Our Legal Advice

Ms A contacted Bartletts Solicitors, and subsequently engaged us, on a no win no fee basis, to represent her in making a compensation claim against the health and beauty spa. We got in touch with them, stating that Ms A’s procedure had not been performed with reasonable care and skill, as the beautician would otherwise not have spilled burning wax onto our client’s skin. They had failed to meet the standard of care one would expect from a fellow professional in similar circumstances, and this constituted negligence. Ms A had been significantly, and possibly permanently scarred by the accident, and this was ultimately the fault of the spa’s owners. After liability was established, Ms A received £4,500 in compensation from the spa’s insurers.
