Beauty clinics have legal teams. They know that their business comes with a risk. Therefore, they have the best people by their side to help them out in the event of an accident. Usually, when someone ends up becoming a victim of an accident during a procedure, they will ask their legal team to come forward and possibly ask the victim to sign a document indicating the amount to be paid to the victim in exchange for not pushing forward with further legal action against the clinic.
This is quite tempting in a way. This is true especially if you are afraid of fighting against them and you don’t have enough money to pay for legal assistance in case you decide to sue them. You need to realise though that the amount you typically get in such early settlements is way too low. You deserve something more.
This is why, if you are offered an early settlement, you should politely say no and consider other options. For sure, they will also do an internal investigation and find out if they have a case against you if you decide to move forward. If they have found out that they are at fault, they will most likely settle for a bigger amount.
Even if you lose the case against them, it will still do some damage to their company. Once their reputation is under doubt, it cannot be repaired. If you think the amount that they offer could cover the medical expenses and some more, go ahead and settle. However, you should also understand that you will suffer from laser hair removal scars. They are permanent. If your job requires you to look good, these scars are distracting.
Find legal assistance
You might be afraid of going through the legal process if they have a strong legal team while you don’t even have money to pay for a lawyer. You have nothing to worry about. There are companies that are willing to help you out. In the event that you lose, you won’t have to pay them anything. If you win, you will have more than enough to cover the legal fees.
You just have to push forward no matter how difficult it is. This should not prevent you from taking a strong stance. You are on the right side and you are just fighting for justice. Besides, you might even be fighting for other people who have no voice or are afraid to come out and fight. If no one takes down these big companies, they might continue their malpractices and there will be more victims in the future.
