Have you suffered an accident in Chepstow whilst having your hair cut?
Although most people enjoy having their hair cut or styled in a salon or parlour, it isn’t always without danger. In order to achieve the best cut possible, many hairdressers use specific types of scissors. Dissimilar to those found in an average home, haircutting scissors are typically much sharper and could produce a nasty cut or laceration if they were to nick your skin.
Whilst you may experience a cut to your skin from such implements, these aren’t the only types of injuries which may occur in this type of setting. You may, for example, suffer a burn if a stylist uses a hairdryer or hair straighteners set at too high a heat. Similarly, if you opt to have your hair washed at the salon, you could suffer burns if the water used is too hot.
Although some of the injuries which occur in hairdressers and salons are directly connected to the work which is undertaken in the premises, some injuries simply happen to occur on the premises but aren’t directly connected to the industry.
For example, if you were to trip or fall in the salon and it wasn’t your fault, the salon owners may be held responsible for any injuries that you’ve sustained. Similarly, if you were to injure yourself on any of the fixtures or fittings in the salon, you could potentially make a claim for compensation if you could show that you weren’t at fault.
