New York BarbershopWith modern men wanting to look their best, male grooming has developed into a billion-dollar industry. There has been rapid growth in the number of barbershops opening all across Western New York and throughout the country. It is not uncommon to walk by barbershops and see hairdressers trimming or shaving facial hair, coloring beards, shampooing hair, dying hair, and styling hair with clays or gels. Before using chemicals and other products on clients, barbers must conduct proper tests to determine any potential adverse reactions. Furthermore, barbers should know how to properly administer the product or treatment.

When barbers do not select the appropriate product for a particular treatment, fail to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for safe application, neglect to properly clean their equipment, or carelessly perform a treatment, patrons can suffer severe burns and other devastating injuries. For example, if a barber left a strong dye in your hair for longer than instructed and it resulted in chemical burns to your scalp and significant hair loss. Sadly, these types of mishaps often lead to tragic injuries, emotional trauma, and other damages. Victims of severe chemical burns often require pain management, skin grafts, cosmetic surgery, or emotional counseling.

Determining The Severity Of Your Barbershop Burn

Determining The Severity Of Your Barbershop BurnThe two main types of injuries that victims suffer at barbershops are skin burns and chemical burns. Skin burns are typically caused by hot tools, like hair dryers or flat irons. As the name suggests, chemical burns are caused by a substance, such as hair dye, coloring, or hair relaxers. Chemical burns typically occur when chemicals are kept on the scalp too long, the product is defective, or the victim has a severe allergic reaction. The signs and symptoms of chemical burns can vary considerably depending on the cause of the burn. The severity of symptoms suffered by victims of barbershop chemical burns is mainly determined by the following:

  1. The length of time that the victim’s skin was exposed to the chemical;
  2. Whether the victim’s skin had open wounds or cuts;
  3. The overall sensitivity of the victim’s skin;
  4. How far into the skin’s layer the burn extends;
  5. The location of the chemical contact;
  6. The amount of the chemical applied;
  7. The strength of the chemical;
  8. The type of substance;
  9. The total surface area of the burn; and
  10. Patient risk factors, such as past medical history and age.



Proving Liability For Your Barber Shop Chemical Burn

The burden of proof in a barbershop chemical burn injury case is on the victim. To recover compensation, the victim’s personal injury attorney must show that he or she was injured because of negligence or carelessness by the barbershop’s owner or employee. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s seasoned lawyers will show that the service provider was legally responsible for your injuries by demonstrating the following:

  1. Duty of Care: All barbers are expected to possess the skills, knowledge, and care shared by other professional hairdressers. This includes being mindful of chemicals, products, and hot equipment that could severely harm clients.
  2. Breach of Duty: When a barber fails to use reasonable care to prevent a client from suffering injury, it implies that he or she breached their duty of care.
  3. Causation: The defendant’s breach of duty caused you to suffer injury. We can show this by demonstrating that you would not have been hurt if not for the barber’s actions or inactions.
  4. Actual Damages: You suffered concrete injuries or other losses, such as hospital bills, lost earnings, scarring, or permanent disfigurement.

Barbershop owners are legally responsible for the safety of their patrons. This includes maintaining their establishments in a reasonably safe manner and remedying known hazards. It is worth noting that under New York law, owners must obtain a Barber Shop license to operate this type of business, and barbers are required to apply for a Barber license. These establishments are governed by various regulations to ensure adequate training, sanitary conditions, and competent work. If a hairdresser’s violation of any provisions of the Barbering License Law caused you harm, our elite attorneys could bring a negligence per se claim against them. Barbershop owners have a legal duty to ensure that their employees perform their duties safely. Owners can be held vicariously liable for injuries caused by their employees.
