We are a skin care company providing skin care services in Los Angeles, Californai. I have an esthetician who did a chemical peel (25% TCA) on our two clients and they suffered 2nd to 3rd degree burn on their legs. Unfortunately, the esthetician wasn't trained on how to apply the 25% TCA peel and she over applied causing burns. It's been a month since the incident and we sent the 2 patients to a dermatologist and he told us that it will take 4 more months for it to come back to its previous state. Now the 2 clients want to settle with us for 100,000 each and they said that their lawyer can easily bump the damages far more than their settlement request.We have been paying for their medical bills. They are giving us till tuesday to accept their proposal or else they will proceed with the lawsuit. Should I just accept their proposal?.
Unfortunately, we have a lapse on our insurance coverage. I have not consulted any attorney.
The burns are not permanent as advise by the dermatologist. It will just take at least 6 months to get back to normal. It has been a month since the incident. They are also claiming for depression due to personal injury. They do still work in their normal job. They just do modeling on the side and plan to join Ms. Earth but since the burns are very evident they are not able to join and will missed some opportunities given to them.
Thank you Attorney Alex. Appreciate your input.
