Hair Injury Compensation Claim
Very few of us haven’t experienced the horror that is going to the hairdressers, asking for a specific style, and coming away looking like Edward Scissorhands has been attacking you. While it can be a rather annoying frustration, and may cause you to change hairdressers and embrace hat wearing for the next few weeks, it invariably is not the end of the world. Certainly, a bad hair do is no reason in itself to claim compensation for personal injury, and in reality no solicitor in Minto, no matter how good they are, is likely to be able to win your case for you.
However, there are some instances in which a legitimate claim for compensation could be made if you have experienced an injury to your hair, head or scalp.
Why not contact Accident Advice Helpline today and speak to our solicitor in Minto to find out if they can help you make a claim after your injury?
How a solicitor in Minto can help
Our solicitor in Minto is experienced when it comes to making claims for hair injuries. Generally speaking such injuries tend to centre around accidents which have occurred in barbers or hairdressing salons.
It may be that the stylist working on your hair has used the wrong chemicals, and these in turn have either created a chemical reaction which has caused burning or other damage; or in some cases, have actually resulted in hair catching on fire.
Of course, such incidences are thankfully relatively rare; however, it does happen. If this has happened to you then your solicitor in Minto will work with you to help establish the precise cause of the accident. It may be that the stylist working on your hair was not fully trained, and therefore not qualified to operate the chemicals in use in a safe environment. It may be that the chemicals had been labelled incorrectly, and therefore the stylist could not have known.
Whatever the situation your solicitor in Minto will work hard to establish if the error could have been prevented, and if so, this will mean that the hairdressers, or the management of the salon you were using, would be regarded as being liable for the accident, and therefore the damage.
Hair related accidents don’t just happen in the hairdressers though. Our solicitor in Minto has helped people who have suffered severe scalp injuries as a result of accidents at work, again, often as a result of being exposed to chemicals. In such situations employers should do all they can to guard against injury and suffering to members of staff.
When your case is won you will be awarded compensation based on the amount of pain and suffering your injuries have caused you. To find out how much you might be entitled to receive take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test today.
