Laser hair removal is a common procedure. A lot of people go for it so they don’t have to keep shaving or plucking. Some people are so hairy that they need to deal with their hair problems on a daily basis. The good thing about laser removal is that the problem is gone quickly. You just need a few sessions to resolve the problem. Although hair could still regrow, it won’t be as thick as it used to be.
Experts in handling lasers are usually assigned to do the job. Unfortunately, not all clinics follow the rules when it comes to the use of lasers. This is why laser burns happen. Patients who have suffered from laser burns will most likely take a long time to recover. You might be lucky if your laser burn happened on your lower leg. Imagine asking for laser hair removal on your chin – which results in a burn. You might have to deal with a facial scar for the rest of your life.
You don’t have to stay at home crying forever. You are the victim in this situation and you need to fight back. You have the right to claim damages since you are a victim. If the beauty of your face is necessary for your job, you can ask for an even bigger amount of compensation.
Reasons for filing a case
There are people who don’t dare sue clinics especially since a lot of them are under-regulated by the government. There are also no clear laws with regard to the use of lasers in clinics for many procedures. However, you also need to understand that the people using these lasers are required to follow the laws that do apply. For instance, if it is not a professional doctor using the device, a licensed therapist must be the one doing it. The therapist must also have enough training in using the laser before being allowed to do the job. A regular therapist without enough experience must not be allowed to use a laser.
The quality of the laser used must also be taken into consideration. If proven that you have suffered from laser burns because the machine was low quality or did not have approval for use in the UK, you can sue the person responsible. Most of all, check if the clinic has insurance. This is how you can easily go after them for damages.
You don’t have to suffer just because you were a victim of a laser burn. Use this opportunity wisely and find people who can provide the right legal advice. You want someone to help you out especially if you are fighting against a strong opponent.
