Online PR News – 12-January-2010 – – Stockport, UK, Jan 11, 2010 - A personal injury solicitor at claimssolicitors.co.uk secured a payout of well over £6000 as compensation for injury and distress caused by a hairdressing accident at her local hair salon. Mrs Z attended the salon to have her hair highlighted. The lack of a strand or skin test beforehand and negligent application of the highlighting solution resulted in very unpleasant injuries to her scalp. Severe itching, bleeding and scabbing eventually lead to a bald patch.

The skin damage eventually healed with the application of medically prescribed creams however the hair was permanently damaged and thus will not recover until entirely new growth appears over time. This was very distressing for Mrs Z and affected her self esteem as a result.

The solicitor was able to prove that poor technique such as applying the solution directly to the scalp (not solely in foils), repeated applications, and leaving the preparation on for too long, all constituted negligence and so a personal injury and hair claim was successful.
