Everyone needs a little pampering and self-care now and then. My wife and team at the office tell me that they enjoy getting regular manicures and pedicures because it’s a great way to treat yourself and take a relaxing break from life’s little stresses. Unfortunately, not all nail salons deliver the safe, healthy and luxurious experience you expect. Sometimes it’s anything BUT relaxing.
What Injuries Can Be Sustained at Nail Salons?
According to a report on WebMD, two-thirds of those surveyed said they had one or more health issues after visiting a salon.
Some nail salon clients have suffered from painful bacterial and fungal nail infections, accidental cuts/injuries, skin irritations, allergic reactions or worse from dirty equipment, hazardous chemical exposure, burns, slip and fall accidents and other accidents.
Injuries range from bleeding nails, itching, burning, tingling, pain, redness, athlete’s foot, nail fungus and nail discoloration, to severe, life-threatening staph infections and amputations.
Some injuries may clear up on their own or with over-the-counter medication, and some could require medical care, surgeries or lead to extensive treatments costing thousands of dollars.
Consult with an Experienced Premises Liability Attorney
A salon could be held liable for the more serious types of injuries if it is negligent or careless in the way it manages its duty of care to the customer. For example, if the salon doesn’t maintain or sterilize its equipment, train staff properly, hire licensed and experienced technicians or follow local, county or state regulations, it could be liable for a customer’s injury.
Be sure to work with a qualified and experienced premises liability lawyer/personal injury attorney to determine if you have a case and find out what your next steps should be if you’re injured at a nail salon in Texas or Florida.
RTRLAW’s experienced and knowledgeable nail salon injury attorneys are well qualified in handling these types of cases and can help you sue the salon (and their insurance company) to make sure they are held accountable for their actions if you’re injured.
Our attorneys will help protect your rights and fight to get you the compensation and damages you deserve.
At RTRLAW, our nail salon injury attorneys have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients who were harmed due to the negligence of a person, product or business since our founding in 1988.
