Hair Treatment Injury Claims

Hair is important to most people and maintaining a particular style or changing to a new one can be costly. If you are paying for a service then you should expect results to be of a professional standard. If you suffer injury or pain because of some else's negligence then you are entitled to make a claim.

for no obligation advice on making a claim.

We deal with most personal injury claims under a no win no fee agreement.

Common hair disasters

There are many more hair treatments and products available today than in comparison to years gone by. These can contain dangerous chemicals which are diluted to an extent but still can pose a risk to different types of skin. Some of the side effects can include:

  • Burns and scalds to the scalp
  • Blistering
  • Temporary or permanent hair loss
  • Allergic reactions
  • Hair follicle damage

Have you suffered an allergic reaction?

Para-phenylenediamine (PPD) is a common ingredient in many hair dyes. PPD is known to cause many side effects ranging from slight itching, intense swelling to anaphylactic shock. An allergy to any chemical can develop at any time in our lives so what was fine last year may not be ok this year. Most hair dye manufacturers state that a patch test should be carried out 48 hours before the full application of hair treatment is to commence.

Formaldehyde is another chemical which is found in some hair straightening solutions and can cause hair loss, blistering of the scalp and breathing difficulties to name a few side effects. This chemical is popular in Japanese and Brazilian hair straightening techniques and has been known to be present in frizz solutions. It is recommended that a strand test be carried out before the full treatment is applied.

Been injured from a hair cut?

All hairdressers owe a duty of care to their clients. This includes dedicating full attention to the task in hand. Scissors are very sharp and one slip could leave you requiring medical attention and in extreme cases, you could be left with a permanent scar. Hair straighteners and other hot hair equipment operate at very high temperatures which can lead to second-degree burns.

Have you suffered as a result of hair extensions?

Hair extensions have become hugely popular and should only be carried out by trained professionals. Problems occur when some of the hair is glued to the scalp rather than the hair or when too many lengths are attached in one place. Gravity pulls on the glue which results in the hair being pulled out. This can cause the scalp to become irritated and inflamed and in some cases it can cause baldness.

Salon negligence

If your treatment is carried out by a professionally qualified individual then they are responsible for carrying out the patch test. Most salons will only carry out hair dying if a patch test has been performed by them and has successful results.

If you have been left with an injury or scar which was the result of negligence then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation under our No Win No Fee arrangement. You shouldn't have to suffer from someone else's negligence. Contact us without any obligation to share your experience and find out if you are able to make a claim for compensation. On your behalf we can claim compensation to cover pain and suffering as well any financial losses that you may occur.
