The most challenging part of going through a legal battle for hair damage claims is going against your hairdresser. You know the person well, and you understand that what happened was an accident. However, you can’t let your prior relationship get in the way. You deserve justice for what happened. So, if you still ask yourself, can I sue my hairdresser? The answer is yes.
It’s about something bigger
Sure, what happened was an accident, but it was also a result of poor management and training. The hairdresser didn’t do well due to the lack of training, especially in using salon equipment. However, it’s the management’s responsibility. Therefore, your lawsuit won’t only be towards the hairdresser but the management team.
You also want this problem not to happen again. The hairdresser might commit the same mistake if the management style persists. The lawsuit and potential loss of money could change the way things get done.
There’s a pattern of negligence
You’re probably not the only person who became a victim of negligence. Other clients had injuries but decided not to move forward with a lawsuit. They didn’t suffer a significant injury or were afraid to go through a legal battle. When you decide to file for damage claims, you’re doing it to break the pattern. You can’t afford to see more people becoming victims.
It sends the right message
This battle even goes beyond the salon that you sued. It also sends a message to other salons to do a better job. They need to train their hairdressers well before asking them to work on paying customers, invest in quality equipment and not settle for cheap alternatives. If hair salons can get away without consequence, there will be more victims, and you can be an instrument for change.
You can still have a relationship with the hairdresser
Just because you’re in a legal battle doesn’t mean you can no longer have a relationship with your hairdresser. Again, it’s not a personal fight. You want to change what’s happening and prevent another disaster. You also wish to the hairdresser to do a better job and for the management team to provide adequate support. If anything, you’re helping the hairdresser improve. This lawsuit already placed a dent in the hairdresser’s reputation, and the only way for the management to save it is by training and doing a better job.
Prepare for the challenge
Whether you face the other party in courts or during settlements, it won’t be easy. Therefore, it pays to prepare for the challenge. Gather evidence and practice what to say. Keep your story straight and prepare for potential questions during your testimony. Talk to your lawyers and cooperate with them. They will take the lead, and you should listen. These legal experts will protect you and ensure justice. Don’t fear anything, and keep the fight going.
It will never be easy, but you’re doing the right thing with the legal experts behind you.
