Our burn injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle lawsuits against plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and spas in cases involving laser hair removal burn injuries. These lawsuits often arise when the technician performing the laser treatment causes a significant burn injury to the patient. Despite what you might be told by the technician, serious burn injuries are not normal. You should never be harmed by a laser hair removal machine.
The clinic or spa is often negligent for failing to properly train the technician and failing to ensure that the laser is functioning properly prior to the procedure. Many patients should not even have laser hair treatment due to other medical conditions or their skin type so the treatment should not have been performed in the first place. Further, many states require physician supervision of this treatment and this often does not occur. The failure to properly supervise a laser technician can also give rise to a lawsuit. Depending on who performs the laser procedure and where it is performed, the legal recourse may be a medical malpractice lawsuit.
It is important to properly document all treatment sessions and take photographs of any burn injuries or disfiguring injuries after each session. This is the best way to prove that you have been unlawfully harmed by the laser and is excellent evident to prove your case.
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. The medical expenses relating to this treatment are significant and can often be re-couped as part of the lawsuit.
