Hair dressing accident
Visiting the hairdressers is not normally an unpleasant experience. There may be a few nerves as to how your hair will look but no fear that anything is going to happen to impact on your heath or well being. However, unfortunately sometimes things can go wrong, and when they do the effects can be devastating.
As styling and hair design becomes more advanced, so do the techniques that are used. Many techniques now involve powerful chemicals to change the natural characteristics of the hair. In the majority of cases and when administered correctly these chemicals work well; however, there are occasions when they are either administered incorrectly or not pre-tested for allergic reactions.
Hairdressers, like any other paid service, owe a duty of care to provide you with a service that you are happy with but also a service that is safe. This should involve a fully risk assessed environment and a service that follows health and safety guidelines.
When mistakes are made the results can have a serious effect on a person’s quality of life. Common injuries are chemical burns which can cause blistering, scarring and hair loss. Any injury that is caused to you by a hairdresser may entitle you to make a claim for compensation.
