Hairdressing Injury Claims

Hairdressing Injury Solicitors

The hairdressing industry turns over billions of pounds a year in the UK and is growing in popularity among both men and women. Most hair salons offer a wide variety of treatments from colouring and tinting to perming, straightening and hair extensions. These treatments form part of a regular beauty regime for many consumers but they are not undertaken without risk. Most hair treatments require the use of hazardous chemicals which, if used incorrectly, can cause serious injury.

Making a Hair Treatment Injuries Claim

Farleys Solicitors can help you claim compensation for hair treatment injuries on a no win no fee basis. This means that you will only pay a fee to us should you win your case. For more information or to discuss a potential claim, speak to an experienced personal injury solicitor at Farleys on 01254606008 or email us today.

Hair Treatment Injuries

The hairdressing profession is currently unregulated, meaning that anyone can offer hairdressing services to the public even if they lack training, qualification or experience. As a result, accidents can occur. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury during a hair treatment, it may be possible to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.

Due to the harmful nature of the chemicals used, skin patch tests are a legal requirement and must be carried out before the full application of the product.  Many salons will also perform a hair strand test prior to your appointment to check that your hair can withstand the products which will be used.

Common injuries suffered at the hairdressers can include:

  • Chemical burns or allergic reactions to the skin/scalp due to failure to patch test

  • Skin reactions, hair loss, or hair damage caused by poorly prepared products

  • Skin reactions, hair loss, or hair damage as a result of a failure to remove products at the correct time

  • Burns from hot curling tongues or straightening irons

  • Scissor cuts

Clearly these types of injuries can be both painful and distressing. At Farleys we have sympathetic and experienced solicitors that can help you pursue a claim for personal injury and associated damages from the salon. For further information please complete an online application form to assess the basis of your claim.
