Client Suffered Eye Injury From Eyelash Extension Strips
Case Study - Eyelash Extensions Injury
Mrs B made an appointment with a beauty salon for eyelash extensions, in advance of her daughter’s 21st birthday party the following day. As the eyelash strips were being applied by the technician, Mrs B felt a stinging pain in her eye, which then began to stream. When the procedure was finished, Mrs B could see that her eye was blood-shot, and that some of the glue had obviously entered her eye. She returned home in considerable discomfort, and saw her GP the same afternoon who prescribed her eye drops. Mrs B’s eye had not cleared up by the following day, and was red and swollen. She did not attend her daughter’s birthday party, and was upset and angry as a result.
Our Legal Advice
Mrs B instructed Bartletts Solicitors to begin a compensation claim against the beauty salon, for the pain and suffering she felt they had caused. We wrote to the salon stating that the beauty technician had been negligent in not informing Mrs B that she had to keep her eye closed throughout the procedure. The beautician had also failed to apply the eyelash strips in a reasonably competent manner, as the glue used contained chemicals which she knew, or should have known, would cause damage if the glue entered the eye. The salon admitted liability for the incident, and Mrs B received £3,250 in compensation for her physical and emotional pain and suffering.
