Big, bouncy, beautiful curls are every woman’s dream, and a good pair of curling tongs can help you to achieve the look, with minimal effort. But not all curling tongs are created equal, and there have been cases where people have been seriously injured by faulty tongs. It doesn’t matter whether your tongs are bargain basement or a high-end designer brand; there is still the potential for accidents to happen, no matter how much you paid for them. But if you’ve been hurt by a faulty pair of tongs, you could claim curling tongs injury compensation.
How have your tongs injured you?
Most curling tongs reach a high heat in order to be able to style hair – even more so in the case of modern tongs with a ceramic barrel. One of the most common injuries sustained from curling tongs is serious burns, for example you could be burned if the curling tongs is turned off but stays hot. This could even lead to a fire in which people could be seriously injured or killed.
It might be that a faulty electrical cord or plug on your tongs has caused an electric shock or serious burns to your hands or face. If you’ve suffered any kind of injury, chances are you may need medical treatment which means time off work to recover. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim curling tongs injury compensation for your loss of earnings, pain and suffering. Whether you or a member of your family has been injured, you could make a claim on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
Who’s to blame?
In cases of faulty products such as curling tongs and hair dryers, the manufacturer is usually to blame, and they could be ordered to pay you personal injury compensation, if you make a claim within three years of your accident. Most claims can be processed over the phone, so it’s unlikely you will actually need to go to court, unless the manufacturer denies liability. You could receive a settlement which could help you out if you’re struggling financially after taking time off work due to burns or injuries sustained after an electric shock.
