Whether you own the latest pair of high-end straighteners or a budget brand, you’ll know one thing – hair straighteners can get very hot! With some ceramic and tourmaline irons reaching temperatures of up to 230 degrees Celsius, there is a real risk that burns and other injuries could occur if a straightening iron is faulty. There have been cases where people have been seriously hurt by a faulty pair of straighteners, and if you or one of your children have been injured, why not make a claim for hair straighteners injury compensation?
The compensation you deserve
Accident Advice Helpline has handled dozens of claims for hair straighteners injury compensation since we were established in 2000. But what is the worst that could happen when you’re straightening your hair?
- Hair straighteners could overheat, spark and burst into flames, causing serious burns
- Overheating straighteners could burn and damage hair, causing it to snap and break
- A faulty plug or wire could cause electric shock or an electrical fire
- Straighteners which have a faulty on/off switch could catch fire when you think they are turned off, leading to burn injuries
When you’re straightening your hair, the last thing you expect is for your straighteners to catch fire, but if they do they could cause serious burns to your face, neck, hands and arms. In some cases, burn injuries can cause permanent scarring, affecting your confidence and your ability to enjoy life as you did before your accident. You might even find yourself unable to return to work, which could affect you and your family financially. We understand that the aftermath of an accident like this is a stressful time, which is why our claims process is so straightforward.
