Our Michigan burn injury lawyers recently settled a claim against a hair salon for woman who suffered chemical burns to her head. The woman was having her hair treated by the stylist when the injury occurred. She suffered chemical burns to a portion of her head that caused a portion of her hair to fall out.
The woman was treated for the burn injuries by a local dermatologist. Treatment included injections to stimulate hair re-growth and topical solutions and creams to treat the burn injury. Her hair has finally re-grown in the area of the chemical burn, but growth has not been full and the quality and texture of her hair is not the same as it was prior to the salon hair burn injury.
We filed a claim against the hair salon for this incident. The salon’s insurance company investigated the claim. We furnished the insurance adjuster all medical records and photographs demonstrating the injury. The case was settled for $13,000 before a lawsuit was filed.
