Burn injuries are not uncommon in beauty salons, especially when hot wax treatments are involved. These incidents often occur when the wax is overheated or when safety protocols are disregarded, leading to severe burns and immense discomfort. In such circumstances, the injured party may be entitled to seek compensation, particularly when negligence on the part of the salon or aesthetician can be established. Brassfield & Krueger, LTD., offers skilled representation and guidance through the injury claims process. Contact our firm for case-specific advice regarding your burn injuries.
To pursue a lawsuit against a waxing salon, it is crucial to establish liability. Liability refers to the responsibility of the salon or aesthetician for the burn injury. There must be clear evidence that the salon operator or aesthetician acted negligently, unsafely, or in bad faith.
Negligence can take many forms, such as improperly heating the wax, using low-quality materials, or failing to follow safety protocols. For instance, in Illinois, beauty technicians are governed by the Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Act of 1985, or 225 ILCS 410, which stipulates certain safety standards. Non-compliance with these standards can be grounds for establishing negligence.
In order to prove negligence or fault on the part of the salon, an attorney will help you demonstrate the following key elements:
To strengthen the case, gathering supporting evidence is crucial. This can include medical reports detailing the extent of the injury, photographs showcasing the physical evidence of the harm caused, and witness testimonies from individuals who observed the incident or can attest to the salon’s negligence.
By presenting a comprehensive collection of evidence, it becomes more likely to successfully substantiate the claims of negligence or fault against the salon.
Burn injuries from waxing accidents can be incredibly painful and have long-lasting effects. If you’ve suffered such an injury due to the negligence of a salon, it’s important to know that you have legal recourse. By establishing liability and proving negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other associated costs.
