Hair Salon Burns
Proven Texas Attorney Litigates Hair Salon Personal Injury Claims
TEXAS LAWYER SEEKS COMPENSATION FOR CLIENTS SERIOUSLY HARMED BY NEGLIGENCE AND GROSS NEGLIGENCE
When you walk into a hair salon, the last thing you expect is to leave with a severe burn. At DK Law, PLLC, I have significant experience throughout Texas assisting victims of hair salon burns. Chemical and thermal burns during hair treatments are surprisingly common, occurring as a result of dyeing, bleaching, or “relaxing.” In the event that you have been burned as the result of an owner’s, manager’s, or employee’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation for the harm you’ve suffered and may continue to suffer for the rest of your life.
DEDICATED FIRM ADVISES PEOPLE SERIOUSLY HURT BY THERMAL BURNS AND CHEMICAL BURNS
All beauty salons must abide by state regulations and industry safety standards and practices. There are three hair treatments that make clients especially susceptible to thermal burns and chemical burns: dyeing, bleaching, and relaxing. Each treatment exposes the client’s sensitive skin on their scalp to high temperatures and powerful chemicals that could cause serious damage. Common technician mistakes that cause these burns include:
- Dilution — If a stylist does not properly measure the chemicals for the hair dye or bleach, the solution could be too highly concentrated, putting the client at risk for a chemical burn on their scalp.
- Amount of exposure — These products should only be on the hair for a certain amount of time, and an experienced technician should know the time limit. If chemical substances stay on the hair and scalp for longer than the appropriate length of time, severe damage can occur.
- Coverage — There are certain areas of the skin that should not be exposed during these treatments, and if those areas are not properly covered, they will be susceptible to serious injuries.
Burns that result from a trip to the hair salon could lead to permanent hair loss, scarring, pain, bizarre and embarrassing medical treatment for the injury, and mental anguish. If you have been burned due to the negligence of a hair salon employee, owner, or manager, you should contact a personal injury attorney to seek maximum damages in your claim.
SKILLED ADVOCATE BUILDS THE STRONGEST CASE POSSIBLE FOR HAIR SALON PERSONAL INJURY VICTIMS
To have a strong personal injury claim, you need to be able to prove that the harm you’ve suffered was caused by an act of negligence. Anyone who enters a salon to have their hair colored, straightened, or treated in another way that involves the use of chemicals has a right to expect they will leave looking better, not left with a severe burn. If the stylist violated safe practices by applying these treatments incorrectly, you do have a right to pursue compensation if you were burned in the process. In Texas, you can file for damages such as pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of wages if your injury was severe enough for you to be unable to work. If you have experienced harm due to the negligence of a hair salon owner, manager, or employee, I can fight for the damages you deserve.
