Salons and nail care facilities are subject to specific laws and regulations that govern how they operate. They have a duty to maintain a safe and sanitary facility for the health and safety of their patrons. When salons fail to adhere to these standards, the results can cause pain, infection and/or permanent scarring.
Improper techniques by unqualified or untrained salon employees can cause cuts, burns and scalp injuries. Failure to properly test salon products can also lead to injury, burns or hair loss. Inadequate sanitary procedures can lead to customer exposure to potentially life threatening infections.
If you believe you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of a salon or its employees, it is important to report the injury as soon as possible and preserve any evidence of your visit (i.e. receipt, credit card statement, appointment card, etc.). Many times the salon will attempt to argue that you were never even a customer at their salon. A knowledgeable attorney who has handled such cases in the past will be able to discover information that may reveal prior incidents of injury to patrons or failed sanitary inspections by state agencies.
If you or someone you love has been injured at a salon, it is critical to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately to fully investigate your claim and preserve critical evidence.
