Have you been injured whilst at the hairdressers?
Although going to the hairdressers may seem simple and straightforward, you could actually be at risk of being hurt or injured whilst having your hair cut. As many hairdressers use specialist scissors to cut hair, the sharp blade may cut your skin relatively easily if they were to nick your scalp or neck.
Whilst this may not cause a serious injury, you could be hurt more severely if you’re injured by one of the other implements that hairdressers use. If, for example, they were to use scalding water when washing your hair, you could suffer from burns to your skin. Similarly, if a hair dryer is used in an isolated area for too long, it could result in burns in the same way that hair straighteners could.
Perhaps one of the most dangerous aspects of having your hair cut is if your hairdresser uses chemicals to colour your hair. Although colour technicians do undergo extensive training before undertaking this type of work, things could easily go wrong.
If, for example, the treatment is left on for too long or the wrong strength is used, you could suffer from a chemical burn or even an allergic reaction. In some instances people even need to attend hospital for this type of injury so it can be serious if left untreated. You may need injury solicitors in Wadebridge to make a claim.
