Beauty Salon Injuries and Lawsuits

Salons are expected to adhere to strict health and safety regulations, ensuring that all chemicals are safe and free of contamination, using products only as directed, and making sure every client receives treatment from a properly trained salon technician.

Failure to meet these guidelines can result in painful injuries, scarring, and even potentially life-threatening infections. When a beauty salon technician causes an injury, you deserve to be compensated. You can sue a salon if your injury was caused by a negligent or reckless action. Contact us today and speak with an experienced salon injury lawyer if you were hurt at a nail or hair salon.

Common Salon Injuries

Negligent work completed at hair, nail, and beauty salons can result in more than just discomfort – they can result in pain, permanent scarring and infection.
Among the most common injuries experienced at beauty salons are:
• Cuts and abrasions
• Hair loss and scalp injuries
• Chemical burns
• Wax burns
• Laser burns
• Bacterial infections
• Staph infection
• Slip and fall injuries
• Allergic reactions

You may think that receiving a small cut from a nail salon is harmless. However, if you were cut by an improperly cleaned or sanitized tool, you may have a legitimate injury claim against the salon. Let our hair and nail salon attorneys help you receive compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering. Suing your hairdresser for negligence can help you cover the damages you have incurred.

Botox Injuries and Side Effects

Botox is a drug created from by bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which is the toxin that causes the food poisoning condition called botulism. Botox is used clinically and cosmetically for a variety of uses, including facial wrinkle removal, severe underarm sweating, chronic migraines, and overactive bladder. Generally, treatment involves injecting a small amount of Botox into a certain area of the body, paralyzing or weakening muscles or nerves.

This treatment is usually a safe practice when administered by a professional. Unfortunately, Botox injections can be dangerous when done incorrectly or irresponsibly. Botox injections can cause severe injuries and health problems when the drug migrates to other parts of the body outside of the intended treatment area, including botulism.
Signs and symptoms of botulism include:

• Muscle weakness
• Trouble swallowing, speaking, or breathing
• Loss of bladder control
• Vision problems

Botulism can lead to respiratory failure, paralysis, and in severe cases death. Patients with severe botulism may require intensive care for several months and therapy for years after recovering.
You may be entitled to compensation if a salon technician negligently administered Botox without giving proper warnings of the risks or did the procedure without care. If you suffered from serious injuries following a Botox treatment, call our salon personal injury attorneys for a consultation immediately.

Most Causes of Salon Injuries

• Failure to test products. Before using a new product, a salon must conduct a number of tests to determine whether the product could have any adverse effects on a patron’s skin, hair, or health. Failure to conduct these tests can result in hair loss, burns, and serious allergic reactions.
• Failure to select the appropriate treatment or use a treatment as directed. Salon technicians are responsible for understanding what treatment is best for a patron and how such a treatment should be used. Common failures include improper wax temperatures, leaving hair dye in too long, and not completing a skin patch test before completing a chemical treatment.
• Unsanitary instruments. Failure to follow proper sanitation methods can greatly increase the risk of bacterial and viral infections. In most extreme cases, unsanitary instruments have been linked to the spread of hepatitis, tuberculosis, and even HIV.
• Use of contaminated or expired chemicals. When left open or mixed improperly, chemicals that are often used in cosmetology treatments can result in severe allergic reactions and painful burns. It is the responsibility of the salon to ensure that all chemicals are safe before use.

Your Salon Injury Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

Following a salon injury, there are always more questions than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer any questions you have about your injury case.

Insurance companies will attempt to pay out as little as possible when resolving an injury claim. When an individual pursues compensation from an insurance company without the aid of an attorney, the insurance company may see the lack of representation as an opportunity to lowball the injured victim as there is no immediate risk of trial or legal recourse.

By hiring a competent attorney who has a reputation for achieving large verdicts in the courtroom, you are sending a message to the insurer. It will provide the insurance company with extra incentive to offer a fair settlement the first time.

If that first offer is not fair, an experienced personal attorney will have the resources and the knowledge to negotiate with the insurance company in pursuit of a better offer.

Thomas J. Henry Law offers free case reviews so that you can better understand your legal options. This means you pay nothing for your first consultation. Additionally, Thomas J. Henry Law works on a contingency fee basis meaning that if you do choose to hire us, you pay us nothing unless and until we win your case.

The cost associated with hiring a personal injury attorney and how payment is collected may vary from firm to firm. At Thomas J. Henry, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we don’t charge our clients a penny unless and until we when their case.

Working on a contingency fee basis allows clients access to resources and legal representation they might otherwise struggle to afford. The more serious a case is, the more money it costs to take to trial. This is because complex litigation tends to take longer to resolve and the entities involved fight harder.

This is especially true if your lawsuit is against a large company, as would be the case in a trucking accident or on-the-job injury. Such companies employ teams of lawyers and have seemingly unlimited financial resources. You need an attorney who has the same. Thomas J. Henry employs a team of more than 100 attorneys and has the money to fight your case out to the end.

Finally, by collecting any fees and expenses after a verdict or settlement is secured, Thomas J. Henry can help ensure his clients are able to focus on healing. “The client’s job is to heal. We will handle the rest,” says Thomas J. Henry.

In a contingency fee arrangement, an attorney agrees to accept a fixed percentage of your recovery as payment. This means that if you win your case, your attorney will collect their fees and expenses from the money awarded to you. However, if you lose your case, your attorney will collect nothing.

Most lawyers prefer not to work on contingency cases for two reasons:

  • There is a risk the firm will be paid nothing
  • Any payment is delayed until money is collected from the opposing party

Generally, a lawyer who accepts contingency fee cases:

  • Regularly represents clients who lack the financial resources to pay hourly attorneys fees (as is often the case for personal injury victims).
  • Is more selective about the cases they accept.
  • Is very confident in their ability to win the cases they choose to handle.

In Texas, a personal injury case is only worth what a jury is willing to award you. This is why you need an attorney who can not only prove the economic damages you have sustained due to your accident, but can also demonstrate the value of non-economic damages you may have sustained, such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.

When you win your Texas personal injury case, there is a multitude of damages you can recover depending on the facts of your case. From past and future medical expenses to lost wages to pain and suffering, a jury will look at the facts of your case to determine exactly what types of compensation you are entitled to.

Among the most common damages recovered in personal injury lawsuits are:

Lost wages – You may be entitled to compensation for the impact an accident or injury has had on your salary or wages. This includes wages lost due to time spent in the hospital, rehabilitation, or the loss of a job due to disability.

Loss of earning capacity – Similar to lost wages, loss of earning capacity seeks to recover income that has been lost due to an accident or injury; however, whereas lost wages is focused on salary or wages that have already been lost, loss of earning capacity seeks damages based on future income.

Medical treatment – Damages almost always include the cost of medical care associated with an accident or injury. Damages can include reimbursement for treatment you have already received as well as compensation for the estimated cost of medical care you will need in the future.

Property loss – If any of your property was damaged or lost as a result of a personal injury accident, your attorney will seek reimbursement for repairs or compensation based on the fair market value of any property that was lost.

Pain and suffering – If your injury has resulted in pain or serious discomfort, you may be entitled to pain and suffering damages. This can include pain experienced when an injury was caused, pain experienced immediately after an injury was caused, and any ongoing pain that can be attributed to the injury or accident.

Loss of enjoyment – These damages attempt to quantify loss of enjoyment in day-to-day pursuits like hobbies, exercise, and other recreational activities.
Emotional distress – Not all injuries are physical. If your accident or injury has had a psychological impact and has resulted in things like anxiety, depression, or sleep loss, you may be entitled to emotional distress damages.

Loss of consortium – Typically applied to wrongful death lawsuits, loss of consortium damages can also be sought when a severe injury has resulted in a loss of companionship or an inability to maintain a sexual relationship with a spouse. Children may also sue for loss of consortium if the injuries have significantly hampered the victim’s ability to provide care, nurturing, or comfort.
