Eyelash Extensions Allergy, Injury And Infection Compensation

By Stephen Hudson. Last Updated 2nd July 2024. Welcome to our guide on how you can claim eyelash extension allergic reaction compensation after suffering through no fault of your own.

Eyelash extensions are a popular beauty treatment that involves gluing false lashes onto the natural eyelashes. This gives the appearance of fuller, thicker eyelashes and is often chosen as a convenient alternative to false eyelashes as they can last 2-3 weeks.

Unfortunately, if eyelash extensions are not carried out correctly, this can result in injuries including eyelash extension allergic reactions. According to legislation such as the Occupiers’ Liability  Act 1957, businesses such as beauty salons owe their customers a duty of care. This means that they are supposed to take every reasonable step possible to uphold the health and safety of their clients when they are on their premises or undergoing treatments. If you have suffered an eyelash extension allergy or irritation, or any other sort of injury caused by negligent beauty treatment, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

If improperly applied eyelash extensions have caused an allergic reaction or any other injury, trust Legal Expert to help you claim compensation. We could provide you with a knowledgeable solicitor who will handle your claim and push to win you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to receive.

Once you’ve read our eyelash extension claims guide, please call us today on 0800 073 8804 to speak to an advisor. We will be happy to give you free legal advice about your beauty salon compensation claim and if we can see that you have legitimate grounds, we will provide you with a solicitor to handle your case.

What Are Eyelash Extension Allergic Reactions?

Eyelash extension products can contain ingredients that users could be allergic to, including cyanoacrylate, formaldehyde or latex. In order to prevent an allergic reaction to lash extensions, a beautician should take such steps as:

  • Being aware of the ingredients in the products they use.
  • Asking the customer if they have any known allergies.
  • Performing a patch test. This is where a small number of lashes are placed to test if there is a reaction.

Given that the eyes and surrounding skin are very sensitive, an allergic reaction can affect the area severely. In the worst case, an allergic reaction to eyelash extensions could potentially cause blindness.

If you’ve suffered unnecessary harm because salon negligence caused you to experience an allergic reaction, you could have the right to claim compensation. Call our free helpline today to learn more about making an eyelash extension allergy claim.

What Steps Should Beauticians Take To Prevent Allergic Reactions?

You may be wondering what steps a beautician would be expected to take to adhere to their duty of care and avoid you suffering from an eyelash extensions allergic reaction. A beautician could not be held liable for all instances of a lash extensions allergic reaction. For example, if you had not informed your beautician of a known allergy, they would likely not be held liable.

Failure To Warn

Your beautician should make you aware of any potential risks of the treatment you are undergoing, such as a possible infection from eyelash extensions. This gives you the opportunity to make an informed decision about the procedure.

If you suffer a side effect that you weren’t aware of due to your beautician failing to warn you, you could potentially make a personal injury claim for negligence.

Failure To Test

As discussed, a beautician could avoid allergic reactions occurring by performing a patch test. This is typically done in advance of the appointment.

If you did not receive a patch test and therefore suffered an allergic reaction, you could potentially claim.

Treatment Negligence

In some instances, the beautician may not be properly trained or qualified to perform the procedure. They may apply the treatment improperly or without due care.

If a beautician makes an error due to not being provided with the proper training, you could potentially hold the salon liable for any injuries or allergic reaction.

 Eyelash Extension Allergic Reaction Compensation Calculator

Following a successful claim, compensation for an eyelash extension allergic reaction could include both general and special damages. General damages aim to compensate you for your physical and mental injuries, as well as how your injury has impacted your quality of life.

When researching how much you could receive for a personal injury, a compensation calculator may be recommended to you. This could help give you an idea of how much you may be eligible for in general damages. However, it may not be able to take financial losses into account.

The table below uses figures from the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). This is document includes compensation brackets assigned to various injuries and is used by many legal professionals to help them value claims. It should be noted that the top figure is included to show you how you could be awarded compensation for multiple injuries and special damages. This figure was not taken from the JCG.

However, you should only use this table as a guide. How much you could receive in general damages will depend on your specific claim.

Injuries Affecting Sight(b) Total BlindnessIn the region of £327,940

Allergic Reaction To Lash Extensions – What Else Can I Claim?

Special damages is the compensation you can seek for any financial effects of an injury or accident.

To give you examples, if the allergic reaction to your lash extensions resulted in:

  • Lost income
  • Treatment or care costs
  • Travel expenses

Then you could request compensation for these losses by making a request for special damages in your claim. You may be asked to present supporting evidence of any amount or loss you make a claim for, so you should maintain receipts or general records of these.

If you were allergic to eyelash extensions and harmed due to negligence, then please reach out to one of our advisers to learn about what could be included in your claim.

Do I Need Evidence To Claim For An Allergic Reaction To Lash Glue?

If you experience harm while receiving eyelash extensions due to an allergic reaction to the lash glue, you may be eligible for compensation. However, you will need to prove that you suffered your injury due to the lash technician breaching their duty of care.

This is why collecting sufficient evidence could help support your claim. It could help with proving who was liable for your injuries and the severity of them.

Evidence that could help support your claim could include:

  • Photos of your injuries or the effects of your allergic reaction, such as any swelling or redness.
  • A copy of your medical records, stating the severity of your injuries and the treatment you required for them.
  • The contact details of any witness who saw the incident take place so that they can provide a statement later. This could be any other beauticians present or other customers.
  • Any receipts or other documents that confirm the treatment you purchased and received that led to your injuries.
  • Correspondence with the lash technician or beauty parlour regarding the treatment you received.

Contact one of our advisors today to discuss your potential claim. If they believe you could be eligible for compensation, they may connect you with one of our solicitors who could assist you with gathering evidence.
