Clinton Cosmetic/Nail Salon Infection Lawyer
Nail salons and other such establishments are extremely popular getaways. They are also extremely hazardous. Most nail salons use very harsh chemicals. The workers who handle these chemicals usually have little or no training in areas like safely storing and using these chemicals. Additionally, state authorities rarely inspect or otherwise intervene at nail salons unless they receive a verified complaint. As a result, the risk of toxic exposure injury is alarmingly high.
Nail salon workers and owners may be tempted to take dangerous shortcuts. In contrast, the diligent Clinton cosmetic/nail salon infection lawyers at Fox Farley Willis & Burnette never take shortcuts and never look for a quick fix or the easy way out. Instead, we collect evidence that supports your claim and carefully research the ever-changing applicable law. Once the case goes to court, we are usually able to settle claims before trial. However, we never settle for anything less than the best possible result, because that’s what you deserve.
When customers visit nail salons or cosmetic clinics, they have a right to receive value for the money they pay. They also have a right to be reasonably safe while they are there. That’s especially true since they are business invitees who provide a financial benefit to the owner. This safety includes the physical environment as well as the tools used.
Chemical and other spills are common at such establishments. These spills are a fall hazard, especially to older visitors or others with a pre-existing medical condition. It’s not enough to display a “Caution Wet Floor” sign and wait for the spill to dry. Instead, employees must clean it up as soon as they know about it.
Chemicals could directly affect health and safety as well, especially if the person has an allergy or other pre-existing condition. Employees have a duty to collect relevant information from customers and tailor their approach to meet the customer’s health needs, as opposed to the customer’s service demands.
Infections are in a special category. Frequently, customers don’t know anything is wrong for several days, several weeks, or even longer. Regardless of when they discover their injuries, a Clinton cosmetic/nail salon infection lawyer can obtain compensation for these injuries.
This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. These damages are available if an attorney proves negligence, or a lack of care, by a preponderance of the evidence, or more likely than not.
Nail salon and other owners are financially responsible for injuries that happen on their property. They are not responsible for unforeseeable injuries, like infections, which occur elsewhere.
Assume Meredith sustains a cut at a nail salon. She’s worried about the impact of that cut. So, she goes to a local emergency clinic. While there, she contracts an infection, because the clinic’s cleaning standards are not high enough. The clinic, as opposed to the nail salon, is responsible for this infection injury. Although Meredith only went to the clinic because of the cut, the infection wasn’t a foreseeable injury, from the nail salon’s perspective.
This financial responsibility is subject to comparative fault and some other insurance company defenses.
