Our laser hair removal treatment injury lawyers handle lawsuits for clients who suffer burn injuries from cosmetic laser treatments. These include cases against plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and treatment spas for laser hair removal on the face, arms, and other parts of the body. The improper use of a laser can cause significant burn injuries on the patient and cause permanent disfigurement and scarring. You should never be harmed by a laser hair removal machine.
There are several reasons why a hair removal patient can suffer a serious laser burn injury. These include negligence by management of the clinic and the person performing the laser treatment procedure. Common reasons for filing a laser hair removal burn injury lawsuit include:
- Improper training of the laser technician
- Unqualified staff using the laser equipment
- Failure to properly supervise the technician
- Defects in the laser equipment
- Improper settings on the laser treatment equipment
- Failing to test the laser on a small spot on the skin prior to providing full treatment
- Using the laser treatment on a patient who is not a good candidate for the treatment.
The burn injuries caused by laser treatment can be 2nd or 3rd degree burns and often require extensive medical treatment to treat the burn. This can be in the form of topical medications and anti-biotics, but in severe cases the patient may require a skin graft or reconstructive surgery.
Depending on who performs the laser procedure and where it is performed, a patient suffering a laser burn injury can often file a lawsuit for the injuries and damages caused by the laser treatment. Compensation in these cases includes the pain and suffering from the burn injury, the scars and disfigurements caused by the burn, and the medical expenses relating to treating the injuries. A person who misses work due to a laser burn injury can also seek payment of lost wages.
