Filing a lawsuit against a hair salon may seem frivolous. After all, uneven, unattractive hair usually grows back. But hair salon lawsuits are not always about aesthetics. Sometimes, gruesome injuries can occur while getting a beauty treatment.
According to a 2015 report by The Independent, hairdressing and beauty services are the most accident-prone industries. However, it’s not always the stylist, manicurist or beautician that suffers a personal injury. Many times, it’s the client that is on the receiving end of an injury at the salon.
And hair salon injuries can be much more severe than a tiny nick of the ears at the hands of a stylist’s slippery fingers.
For instance, hair color treatments involve the use of many harsh, synthetic chemicals. Those noxious substances can cause allergic reactions or far worse, such as burns or damage to the respiratory system, if the stylist applies them negligently.
Toxic chemicals can also cause long-term or irreparable damage to the hair, which can impact professional prospects in addition to inflicting intangible damages to the victim.
Accidents happen and humans are not perfect. But that doesn’t mean if someone is injured at a hair salon by the negligence of staff or owners, they should just chalk it up to human error and let bygones be bygones. In order to receive compensation for out-of-pocket medical expenses or income lost because of the injury, it is necessary to seek legal representation.
Another example of a serious injury at the salon occurs when the staff inadequately dries the floor. A dangerous slip or fall can result. A serious injury can occur at the hair salon just like in any other place of business.
