Achieved a $750K Settlement for a Teenage Girl Who Sustained Second Degree Burns

Robins Kaplan attorneys achieved a $750,000 settlement for a teenage girl who sustained second degree burns to her scalp after a hair lightening procedure at a beauty salon. The burn left a large bald spot in the back of her head that is quite noticeable. Unfortunately, after three surgeries, she still is left with a significant bald spot in the back of her head.

With this settlement, the young woman will be able to explore hair treatment options she needs to give her greater self-confidence, and assistant her options to reduce the appearance of the bald spot.

Past results are reported to provide the reader with an indication of the type of litigation we practice. They do not and should not be construed to create an expectation of result in any other case, as all cases are dependent upon their own unique fact situation and applicable law.
