Have you been injured at your salon? A brief overview of the beauty salon liability law

Salons are fondly known as a place of unwinding and rejuvenation for the consumer of the services. It is a place where one can pamper himself or herself and relax. It is like a therapy for the body as well as the mind. Manicure, pedicure, facial clean-ups, spa, body massage, unwanted hair removal and so on. You name it; you have it. There is no end to the ways in which you can take care of you look and hence, how you feel. But have you ever imagined, that a salon environment can actually prove to be really dangerous if proper care is not taken at the part of the ones offering such services?

Every salon, small or big, has the responsibility of maintaining an environment that is safe and free of any danger or potential hazards for its clients. The products used should be safe and free of harmful chemicals, the processes employed should be safe and harmless, the environment of the salon should be well secured, and trained and professional beauty experts should offer the treatment or service.  However, every year there are thousands of cases reported about such injuries, permanent scars or infections arising out of the irresponsible execution of duty on the part of the salon experts and professionals. Such reckless actions can cause permanent damage that can be embarrassing as well as deadly.

Types of salon injuries and their causes
