Dumbarton Accident Claim


Dumbarton Accident Claim

Jenny from Dumbarton sustained painful chemical burns to her face and scalp when an appointment with her hairdresser went badly wrong. Jenny’s usual stylist was off on sick-leave and she had been offered the services of a new employee. The owner of the salon explained that he was fully qualified and more than capable of colouring and cutting Jenny’s hair.

Jenny really needed her hair done as she was to attend a wedding the next day, so she agreed to go ahead with her appointment. However, within a few minutes of the stylist applying the colour to Jenny’s hair, she felt an intense burning sensation on her scalp. The pain got worse and some of the liquid dripped down her face, burning her forehead and stinging her eyes. Jenny asked the hairdresser to wash it off immediately, but before he could do so, Jenny passed out. The pain had just been too much for her.


The owner of the salon called for an ambulance and Jenny was taken to the accident and emergency unit. The burns to her skin were treated and Jenny was given pain relief to take when she needed it. The doctor warned that it could be some time before Jenny felt well again and he recommended that she kept her wounds clean and covered at all times.

Jenny felt miserable. The pain kept her awake at night and the burns to her face were unsightly. She was unable to attend her friend’s wedding and Jenny stayed at home during the following days and weeks.


Jenny had  a real sense of injustice that she as suffering so much through no fault of her own. The stylist has not mixed the hair colour properly and he had applied it directly to her scalp. His negligence had caused her so much pain and Jenny wondered if she might be able to make a Dumbarton accident claim in order to receive compensation. Surely she deserved some justice?
