If you have been accidentally burnt by staff during a laser hair treatment removal procedure, your reaction might not be the most controlled, given the scenario.
Your initial reaction might be to scream in pain but you also don’t want to be harsh towards the staff. You might even smile and just let it pass. Before doing so, you have to understand that having a laser burn is something serious. This is a problem that does not go away overnight.
In fact, the scarring could remain forever. It might be physically painful today, but it could be more painful in other ways in the future.
Ways laser burns could affect you
To begin with, going through treatment and therapy could take months or even years. Imagine the medical bills you would accumulate during this period. You might not be able to afford to pay them. Worse, you might even be kicked out of your job. Flight attendants or models, for instance, have to show their legs as part of their job. If you have a scarred leg, you are no longer a good candidate for the job.
These are just some of the possibilities. You might consider ignoring the problem and simply forgiving the people who have done this horrible job. Then you will be left to suffer the medical expenses for recovery by yourself. You might even become depressed if you have lost your job. But worst of all, in such cases, the hospital or clinic continues its operations.
Get experts to help you
There are experts in laser hair removal burns claims whom you could ask for help. They could also provide help for related incidents. The good thing about having these experts on your side is that you feel more confident in your legal battle.
This would be the next step you take if you can’t afford the expenses of rehabilitation and recovery on your own. Even your health insurance might not be enough. You also want to make sure that those responsible for your injuries learn their lesson.
Justice for all
If you present your case right, it will ensure that the hospital or clinic becomes more serious about their operations and the duty of care they have to clients. In the worst case, the establishment might even be closed. This sets a precedent for other such cases in the future. In a way, you are also bringing justice to everyone else who has suffered or could suffer from such malpractice.
Be brave and keep the fight going. You deserve to win your case.
