How much can I claim for facial waxing injury compensation if I suffered with burns on my chin? I feel like I can’t go to work as I am very embarrassed to be seen in public.

The amount of facial waxing injury compensation you are eligible for relies on a number of different factors. Every compensation claim for a facial waxing injury is unique because of the different implications a facial waxing injury can have on a person’s quality of life.

A number of factors must be considered when calculating how much facial waxing injury compensation a person should receive. One factor is the level of pain suffered by the injured party when the burn was sustained and the subsequent scarring as regards your age, the injury’s visibility and your general state of health before the facial waxing damage. Another important factor is the negative impact your injury has had on your quality of life – for example, your lack of confidence and inability to go to work.

You may also include any psychological suffering in your facial waxing injury compensation claim but you will be required to undergo a psychological examination. However, you can be reimbursed for this professional testimony when your injury claim is won. Other costs you have incurred which are attributable to the beauty salon’s negligence, such as loss of income, overtime and pension contributions can also be recovered in the event of a successful claim.

Should the salon admit liability for your burn, there is a possibility that the beauty salon may offer you early facial waxing injury compensation. What they offer will most likely be an insufficient amount to reflect your pain and anguish. Referring such an offer to a professional solicitor is recommended as they can more accurately estimate what is the correct amount of compensation you can expect to receive.

By engaging with a solicitor from the first practical opportunity, you may find that your compensation claim for a facial waxing injury will be easier resolved. Most solicitors offer a free initial consultation where they can answer any questions you have and they can assess whether or not you have a viable claim.
