Tattoo artists reusing needles or failing to wash their hands before tattooing people… If this sounds like a fabricated story parents would tell their children to discourage them from getting a tattoo, you may be surprised to find out that this sort of conduct can actually happen to any of us. True story.
Yes, getting a tattoo is more popular than ever before, and it’s getting practically impossible to see a person with no tattoos whatsoever nowadays. But with the increased popularity of tattoos in Texas and all across the U.S., and with tattoo parlors springing up like weeds in May all across the nation, there is a heightened risk of getting injured in a tattoo parlor accident.
“The vast majority of these accidents are caused by negligence or carelessness on the part of tattoo artists or their employers,” says a Dallas tattoo parlor accident attorney at Law Office of Dorothy Hyde. “While it may be scary to think even for a second that you can be injured or harmed at a tattoo parlor, do not worry – you have a right to seek compensation for your injuries and resulting damages if you can prove that the tattoo parlor or its workers failed to take reasonable safety precautions to prevent harm.”
While it may seem as if all tattoo parlor accidents are related to the process of getting a tattoo, this is not true. In fact, a slip and fall accident is one of the most common causes of injuries at tattoo parlors in Dallas and elsewhere in Texas. Injuries caused by the property owner and his/her employees’ failure to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe and sanitary condition free of any hazardous conditions include the following factors:

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.

It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.

Texas Representative Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) has introduced a bill that would make helmet wearing a requirement for all motorcycle riders in the state. In […]

That is why it has been so shocking to hear the Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder may have committed a crime. Last month, we learned that Felder was accused of hitting a teenager who was riding a scooter […]

Today, we want to bring you a story from a Houston hospital because it highlights a pattern of medical errors. At St. Luke’s Medical Center, a woman was given a blood transfusion last year. The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]
Dogs are beautiful but wild creatures. They have their own personalities and often will do all they can to protect their owners. However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
