Allergic Reaction To Hair Dye – £4800 Settlement
Anne Trotter made a successful hair damage claim after she suffered an allergic reaction to a hair dye treatment.
She had been using the same salon regularly to have her roots touched up without any problems.
But the hairdresser then started using a new product on Anne’s hair without telling her about the change.
The hairdresser didn’t carry out any skin tests or strand tests.
As a result Anne suffered an allergic reaction immediately after the first treatment.
She developed skin irritation on her neck and scalp, and her hair was also damaged.
Claiming compensation for hair damage can be a difficult business.
So it is important to instruct a solicitor with the right experience.
Mulderrigs have dealt with hundreds of successful hair damage claims against hairdressers, including lots of hair dye claims just like Anne’s.
So we were happy to take on her case and we agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.
A hair expert (a trichologist) investigated the case for us, which is an essential factor in the success of any type of hair claim.
The expert confirmed that the damage was caused by the hair dye.
He also advised it would take over five years for Anne’s hair to return to its pre-damaged state.
The insurers for the negligent hairdresser initially denied any liability.
So we commenced court proceedings on Anne’s behalf.
This forced the insurers to negotiate with us.
Anne then accepted £4800 in settlement of her claim.
