Dallas Beauty Salon Accident Attorney
People visit beauty salons regularly to treat themselves to cosmetic and beauty procedures for various reasons. Some visit beauty salons to look picture-perfect for an important event later that day (a business meeting, company holiday party, romantic date, etc.), while others go to beauty and nail salons to maintain their beauty (manicure, pedicure, haircut, hair dyeing, massage, etc.).
There are thousands of beauty salons in Dallas and other cities across Texas. But one such trip to a beauty salon can become a disaster that can ruin not just one evening, but a few precious months or years of your life. Yes, we are talking about injuries, illnesses, and infections related to beauty salon accidents.
“Nail and beauty salons in Dallas and all across Texas have a legal duty to maintain their premises in a safe, clean, and sanitary condition to keep their customers and visitors safe,” says our Dallas beauty salon accident attorney at Law Office of Dorothy Hyde. “All this can be done through exercising reasonable care.”
Beauty salons’ responsibility for injuries
Unfortunately, there are many hair and nail salons in our state that breach this legal duty of care and fail to comply with a variety of strict health, safety, and sanitary requirements imposed by Texas premises liability law.
While many of you might think that premises liability law covers slip and fall accidents and other similar accidents, this is not entirely true. For example, you may be able to sue a beauty salon for failure to ensure that it used a product that is safe and not expired or recalled.
In addition to that, beauty salons can be held accountable for any injuries resulting from their failure to ensure that all chemicals and products used on their customers are safe and free of contamination. Also, there are strict regulations for how these products and chemicals should be used, so if a member of a beauty salon fails to use a product as directed or instructed, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your resulting injury or harm.
Our experienced beauty salon accident attorney in Dallas says that hiring properly trained and educated salon technicians is one of the basic legal duties that nail, hair, and other beauty salons have in Texas.
