Going through any legal battle is tough. This is physically and emotionally stressful. However, if you feel like you were wronged and the proper procedure was not followed, you can at least file a case to get just compensation.
You can just let it pass if you think it is just a minor problem. If you are a model or your hair is a huge part of your livelihood, however, you can’t just let it go. You will face serious financial issues if your hair has been destroyed.
As soon as the damage has been done, you need to relax and gather evidence. Arguing won’t help. Never accept their apology or tell them everything is fine. You know it is not and you need to fight for your right. With a good lawyer, you can get justice for what they did to your hair.
Determining the amount to claim
The basic principle in determining how much you need to claim is the time it takes for the hair to regrow after the initial damage. You can’t easily put a price tag on this, so your lawyer could help a lot. Avoid putting a very high price tag or else your claim might be immediately denied.
Once you have filed a case against the company, you need to wait for their response. Some of them will immediately respond by challenging you in court while others might opt for a settlement. Either way, you have to prepare for it. You should be fully prepared emotionally before the case begins.
Make a stronger case
To ensure that you have a stronger case, seek medical advice just to have an initial prognosis. It also helps if you have collected photos and other evidence of any wrongdoing. If possible, write a diary of your daily suffering due to what happened. If you feel pain or irritation, write it down. The same thing holds true for emotional trauma. Losing a job because of what happened to your hair should also be documented. Most of all, if you have paid someone else to rectify the problem, you should keep the receipts. All of these documents can be used when asking for hairdresser compensation.
It is a long process
Don’t expect this to be over any time soon. Even if the company is at fault, they will fight hard just to save their company’s reputation. Some of them could resort to dirty tricks. Whatever happens, you need to be tough. The same thing could happen if you file for compensation for burns after a cosmetic surgery or procedure. With a quality lawyer by your side, you will get the justice you deserve in the end.
