Nail Salon Claims

Advice and assistance from Cohen Cramer

Nail salons, like so many areas of the beauty industry are unregulated and, as the number of salons increases so does the number of claims for negligence. If you have suffered injury as a result of poor and negligent service Cohen Cramer can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

One of the main problems is that a lot of salons, as well as having poorly trained and unqualified staff, use acrylic products that contain methyl methacrylate (MMA). MMA is a substance that has its origins in dental and bone work, but is wholly unsuitable for use in manicures and has been linked with a number of serious conditions. It is not in itself hazardous just unsuitable for false nails as it does not adhere well to the true nail and so the ‘technician’ is required to roughen up the natural nail to allow adherence resulting in damaged and thin nails.  Furthermore the false nail made from MMA sets rock hard causing problems when removing.

Claim for negligent nail salon treatment

Other causes of injury following on from such treatment may be due to:

  • poor hygiene standards resulting in nail fungus due to a failure to properly sterilise equipment
  • use of the wrong adhesive leading to problems and tears when the nail is removed
  • over-exposure to chemical leading to dermatological issues
  • lack of patch testing.  You should receive a patch test at least 48 hours before the actual treatment is due to begin to determine whether you are likely to suffer an adverse reaction to the chemicals to be used in the treatment.

In addition to claiming compensation for your injury, pain and suffering we would look to recover:

  • the cost of any treatment/follow-up work required as a result of the negligent procedure
  • the cost of the original procedure causing your problems
  • time off work for recovery and/or treatment
  • all and any other financial losses resulting from the incident.

If you have been affected by poor treatment we would recommend that you take the following steps:

take clear and dated pictures of the affected area; you may want to do this over a period of time to show development and recovery

seek medical assistance from your doctor or hospital depending on the severity of your injuries
