Laser Hair Removal Lawsuits in New York
Hire a Rochester Personal Injury Attorney
Laser hair removal procedures have risen in popularity at spas and salons
as a means of permanently eliminating unwanted body hair. This type of
procedure involves using streams of light to kill a person’s hair
follicles with heat. While this type of service can be beneficial when
performed correctly, mishaps by poorly trained or negligent staff can
cause patients to suffer serious burns. If a botched laser hair removal
procedure has left you injured, a skilled
Rochester personal injury lawyer from The Law Office of Robert King can represent your interests and help
you pursue compensation for your suffering.
Review your legal options during a
no-cost, no-obligation consultation.
The Dangers of Laser Hair Removal
Technicians who perform laser hair removal procedures often use an instrument
known as an Intense Pulsed Light machine to destroy hair follicles with
intense, repeated heat. Second and third-degree
burn injuries are the most commonly suffered injury by those who receive laser hair
removal treatment, causing blistering and tissue damage that can sometimes
require costly skin grafts to be treated. Those with darker colored skin
tones are more likely to suffer injury.
Even though these types of procedures are performed in non-medical settings,
laser hair removal carries the same risks as those in a hospital or surgical
center. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating
these types of cosmetic procedures in an effort to determine if non-medical
personnel should be permitted to continue to perform these treatments.
As it stands, a person does not need any sort of medical training to legally
administer these procedures.
What Compensation Can I Recover?
If you have suffered an injury from a cosmetic procedure involving a laser,
you may be able to take legal action against the technician, their employer,
or the owner of the spa where the treatment took place. If your injuries
were caused by a defective laser, the instrument’s manufacturer
can also be held liable. An attorney can review your situation and determine
the most appropriate course of action.
Successful claimants may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Resulting medical treatments
- Pain and suffering
- Rehabilitation costs
- Emotional distress
