Hairdresser injury compensation claims near me. 

While many popular beauty treatments might not be everybody’s cup of tea, a visit to the hairdressers or barbers for a haircut is a regular occurrence for most people. It is no surprise to hear, therefore, that there are around 45,000 hair salons operating across the UK, and that the industry turns over around £8 billion every year. 
 
With so many thousands of hair cuts taking place across the country every single day, it is unsurprising that some of these appointments go wrong, and, unfortunately, some of them end up in the client being accidentally injured.

What should I do if I am injured at the hairdressers? 

Seek medical attention for any injuries- even if your injuries are fairly mild, and you feel that they could heal without any medical treatment, it is always the best idea to visit your local GP or A&E department with any injuries, and have them checked out. This is important not only for your health and well-being, but the records and notes from these appointments can become crucial evidence for any potential personal injury claim further down the line. 
 
Save any paper work and correspondences- whether it is a receipt, a confirmation email, or phone records, it is also important to keep any relevant information regarding your appointment safe. This could be used during your claim simply as a way to verify your story. 
 
Take photographs of your injuries- from the first day that you become injured, your injuries will begin to gradually change over time, and could begin to heal themselves. If this is the case, it can be difficult to argue a case of personal injury for which there is no evidence of any injuries. Because of this, you should always try to take regular photographs of your physical injuries, as well as how they change over time. You can even go one step further than this, and keep a personal injury diary, documenting your pain and experiences, in order to build your case further. 
 
Contact an expert personal injury solicitor specialising in beauty negligence claims- a hairdresser claim can be a unique and complicated kind of personal injury claim. For this reason, it would always be advisable to work with a specialist beauty negligence solicitor who has experience in settling and winning cases just like yours. Contact MG Legal’s team of experts, here, to get the ball rolling on your claim. 

What kind of accidents can happen at the hairdressers? 

There are a number of different injuries and accidents that can occur in a hair salon. They work with sharp scissors, hot styling tools, and potentially harmful dyes and other chemicals. 
 
Some of the most common injuries that are sustained in hairdressers and barbers are: 
 
Allergic reactions to products such as dyes and toning products, where no patch test is carried out beforehand 
 
Damage to hair where the burning of the scalp leads to hair loss 
 
Cuts, scars, or lacerations from sharp objects such as scissors 
 
Loss of hair and bald patches in reaction to chemicals being misused 
 
Contact dermatitis of the scalp from dyes and other chemicals being left on for too long 

How much is my hairdresser personal injury claim worth? 

The amount of financial compensation that you could receive for your personal injury claim will depend on the injuries that you have suffered, and any other financial losses or expenses. See more on these extra losses, here. 
 
Every injury is unique, and there is no way to accurately predict how much a personal injury claim is worth. Below are general guidelines as provided by the Judicial College, as to the amounts that can be won for the injuries alone. 
Injury type: 
Expected financial compensation: 
Damage to the hair in consequence of defective permanent waving, or the like, where the ‘burning’ of the scalp causes dry, brittle hair which breaks or falls out. 
£6,890 to £10,340 
Less serious versions of the above where symptoms are fewer or of a minor nature. 
£3,710 to £6,890 
Scarring- A single noticeable or obvious scar, or otherwise a number of less noticeable scars 
£2,220 to £7,350
