LASER BURN INJURIES
While minor burns occasionally happen during laser hair removal procedures, you should not have serious burns or scarring. If you suspect that you have been seriously burned during a laser treatment, contact a physician as soon as possible.
If you have suffered second degree or third degree burns from a treatment at a spa or laser hair removal facility, it can be important for you to talk to an experienced attorney. Documenting the injury early on is essential. Detailed photographs are always helpful. An evaluation from a dermatologist and/or a plastic surgeon may also be necessary. The attorneys at Danks, Miller & Cory can help you make the right choices while protecting your legal right to recover for the injuries and losses sustained.
Who is legally responsible for the laser burn?
Laser burn injuries are usually the result of simple negligence by the technician or cosmetologist. The Spa or Clinic is responsible for the negligence of its technicians. Those who supervised or were supposed to supervise the technician may share the legal responsibility. This may include the physician, medical director, or business owner. Finally, in the event that a problem with the laser caused the burns, then the manufacturer may be responsible for some or all of the damages.
The factual basis for a lawsuit can only be determined after we investigate the facts surrounding your actual injury. As with any personal injury, it is important to consult with a lawyer soon after the injury to preserve evidence and to have the best opportunity for a full and fair settlement.
