Hairdresser Compensation Claims
Yes, it is in fact possible to sue your hairdresser. However, quite obviously you cannot sue your hairdresser for a haircut you simply don’t like as this is a matter of opinion, not of negligence. When you enter into a claim against a hairdresser it is most likely to be successful if you are claiming for personal injury and any psychological damage which has occurred as a result of the injury. A trip to the hairdressers is typically not a health hazard so if a problem occurs due to the negligence of your hairdresser it can be very distressing.
Types of Hairdresser Claims
Hairdressers are trained in the use of all the equipment and chemicals they use on a day to day basis in the salon. Therefore when they either use equipment or chemicals they have not been trained to use and this results in an issue, you have every right to make a claim against them. Your hairdresser may have been negligent if one of the following has occurred to you:
- Severe damage to hair/hair loss: If your hair has been severely damaged due to a hairdresser leaving chemicals on your hair for an inappropriate amount of time, you may be able to claim, particularly if you have lost some or all of your hair.
- Cuts: If your hairdresser cuts you with scissors you may have a viable claim on your hands if they have seriously injured you or if the cut has occurred due to their lack of attention to the job they are doing, or their equipment is not up to standard for example their scissors are blunt. Obviously accidents do happen, and in many cases an accident will not equal a claim. Each case is different and you should discuss your circumstances with one of our specialist personal injury lawyers today to get a clear picture of where you stand.
- Chemical burn from hair dye/peroxide: Peroxide is extremely toxic. Peroxide should not make direct, prolonged contact with the skin and also should not be left on the hair for longer than specified. If the improper use of peroxide has affected you, you will be able to claim as your hairdresser should be aware of the dangers of peroxide and should use it with appropriate caution. You will prevent them harming another customer by making a claim against the negligent individual.
- Allergic reaction: hair dye is a very common cause of allergic reactions, swelling and rashes. Your hairdresser should do a skin test of any new hair dye that is being used on you. If you have a severe allergic reaction due to their failure to offer you a skin test, you may be able to claim for the unnecessary suffering you have gone through.
