Hair Damage Claims

Suffering hair damage at the fault of another can often be a deeply embarrassing, troubling and even harrowing experience for those to whom it happens. Accidents at the hands of the professionals are rare, but when they do happen they can have a lasting effect on the victim’s confidence and self-esteem, and in some cases can also be extremely painful and disfiguring.

If your hair has been damaged as the result of professional negligence, then you could be eligible to make a hair damage claim. In some hair damage claims the compensation awarded can be as much as £7,000. Read on to find out more. 

What is a hair damage claim, and what does it cover?
A hair damage claim can incorporate a number of different accidents, but the one constant factor must be that the accident was caused as a direct result of the negligence of another. The most common types of hair damage claims include:
  • Balding
  • Burned hair
  • Patchiness
  • Brittle hair
  • Scalp dermatitis (caused by unsafe or prolonged exposure to certain products)
  • Psychological conditions

Are there different types of hair damage claims?
Yes. Generally speaking there are three different categories/causes that would enable you to make a hair damage claim but the constant remains; that somebody must be considered “legally at fault” in a court of law.
The three different types of hair damage claims include:
  • Preventable accidents (for example, if your hair has caught fire in the hairdressers)
  • Professional negligence (for example, when a hairdresser applied the wrong chemical in procedures such as bleaching)
  • Criminal acts of violence (such as an assault that has resulted in hair loss)
What kind of compensation am I entitled to?
There are two main areas of compensation in which a court will award damages for. These are:
  • Pain and suffering – an independent medical expert will examine the extent of your injuries, which will help to determine how much compensation is eventually awarded
  • Financial losses and expenses – eg, time taken off work, medical expenses for corrective treatment, travel expenses etc
If you believe you have suffered any of the abovementioned injuries due to another person’s negligence, then you could be eligible to make a hair damage claim.
