Beauty Salon Accidents and Injuries

Those that visit a beauty salon rarely expect to suffer personal injury while getting their hair or nails done. That’s because beauty salons aim to provide a relaxing and stress-free moment, as well as a break from the tedious tasks brought on by work. However, many things can happen in a beauty salon that could lead to personal injuries to clients. For example, a woman attending a local beauty salon for a cut and color treatment, suffered injuries and mental trauma when her hair got stuck in the dryer. Though the injuries were minor, she lost a considerable amount of hair as well as a bruised scalp. The truth is, that people fail to realize the hidden dangers that lurk in beauty salons, which may involve human error or injury from over exposure to heat or chemical products. In another situation, a client visiting a beauty salon for a facial, suffered burns on the face because of a chemical reaction brought on by an outdated product applied to her face. Here, the business operator may be held liable for her injuries as measures could have been taken to prevent the incident from happening. Whenever substances such as creams, lotions, shampoos, etc., are used on the human body, they can cause injury from allergic reactions. This may not necessarily be the business operator’s fault. However, if the stylist leaves a cream or lotion on a person’s face too long, this could lead to rashes or burns. Make-up is another skin product that may lead to an allergic or chemical reaction which can cause permanent injuries such as scarring from burns.

AFTER AN ACCIDENT, IT’S IMPORTANT FOR A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER TO BE ABLE TO DETERMINE WHAT YOUR PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENT CLAIM FOR COMPENSATION IS WORTH.

Jonathan Perazzo, founder and attorney at the Perazzo Law Firm, shares valuable insight for understanding accident claims and their value to accident victims in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Orange County.

Being involved in an accident can range from a scare to life altering experience. Regardless, an accident victim that was subject to negligence on behalf of another individual, company, or manufacturer, may be entitled to compensation to cover personal injury and losses stemming from medical expenses and/or lost wages. What you, a friend, or relative obtains following a personal injury case can be determined through several factors and are based on the extent of injury, emotional suffering, damages to assets, and most importantly, lost wages. Each of these factors are complex but they are not impossible to understand. However, they will require the help and legal representation of a professional, experienced, and dedicated personal injury lawyer.

TAINTED FOODS AND PERSONAL INJURY

In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm informs about the growing trend in the consumption and distribution of tainted foods that are leading to massive recalls nationwide by the Center for Disease and Control (CDC).

Personal Injury from consuming tainted goods, especially those leading Salmonella poisoning, can lead to hospitalization, medical expenses, lost wages, and even wrongful death among the elderly, very young, the physically frail, or those whose immune systems are poor.

Toxic hand sanitizer leads to blindness and death

COVID-19-Miami-Lawyer-300x300According to the CDC, a toxic hand sanitizer led to the wrongful death and personal injury to several consumers. Apparently, the toxic hand sanitizer was ingested and caused 15 people to be admitted for methanol contamination. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had alerted potential consumers that certain hand sanitizers contained the poisonous chemical, which can be fatal upon human consumption. Since May, over a dozen people have been treated, with four of those that somehow ingested the hand sanitizer suffering wrongful death. In Miami, this is not the first time that consumers become ill and die from consuming tainted products. Of the 11 infected victims, three where left with almost full loss of sight, with half a dozen product liability negligence victims suffering seizures while being treated in the hospital. Sixty-two more case have been reported thus far with some of those allegedly children that may have swallowed the methanol tainted hand sanitizer accidentally. Sadly, sometimes people struggling with alcohol or substance abuse may intentional consumer hand sanitizers for the alcohol content. Unfortunately, in this case, they got a dose of methanol too if that is the case. However, with the booming use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers as a result of COVID-19, more and more people are depending on hand sanitizer to keep them coronavirus-free. As a result, it may be common for an alcohol-based hand sanitizer user to accidentally ingest the product, either through direct contact with the hands or facial covering. For this reason, the hand sanitizer in question and its manufacturer may be held legally liable for any personal injury or wrongful death caused by the methanol tainted hand sanitizer.  The CDC warns of nausea, abdominal discomfort, disorientation or dizzy spells, or seizures. More severe symptoms may result in loss of sight and even death. The FDA warns consumers to never ingest hand sanitizers and avoid imported goods containing methanol.
