COMPLAINTS OF BURNS SUSTAINED DURING USE OF SALLY HANSEN EYEBROW, FACE & LIP WAX KIT
Severe and painful burns resulting from the normal use of an at-home waxing kit are no laughing matter. The Sally Hansen Microwavable Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax Kit has injured many people by either having liquefied wax explode out of its jar or by having the wax melt a hole through the bottom of its jar. If either of these scenarios has happened to you and you have been burned, you are certainly not alone and you may be entitled to compensation.
The decision to use an at-home beauty product should not carry with it the risk of suffering a life-changing injury. Unfortunately, many individuals across the country have been seriously burned and permanently scarred as a result of using the Sally Hansen Microwavable Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax Kit. We believe that this product was poorly designed.
Thousands of wax burn victims have already contacted Sally Hansen to complain about being burned by the use of this microwavable wax product. We have learned that Sally Hansen representatives respond to these legitimate complaints by blaming the victim for allegedly misusing the product. We believe that this is a deliberate way to discourage wax burn victims from pursuing their complaints any further. It appears that Sally Hansen is trying to shame and embarrass burn victims from seeking fair compensation for injuries that are not their fault.
If you were burned by using a Sally Hansen wax product, you are certainly not alone, and we are available to help you obtain compensation for your injury and medical expenses.
Reported burns from this poorly designed product vary in severity and location. Wax burns may occur anywhere on the body, but burns most frequently associated with the Sally Hansen Microwavable Eyebrow, Face & Lip Wax Kit have been reported on users’ faces, hands, arms, chests and feet. These burns may cause permanent skin damage, including second or third degree burns damaging multiple layers of skin. The most severe burns may require cosmetic surgery.
If you have suffered a serious burn, consult a medical professional as soon as possible. Seeking prompt medical attention is extremely important.
You should also document what happened to you and how it happened. You can do this by taking pictures of your burns, the product container, the microwave used to heat the wax, and the location of the microwave. Also, keep the packaging and the product container in a sealed plastic bag.
Time is of the essence. Each state has its own period of time in which a legal claim can be filed; this period is known as a Statute of Limitations. The period starts on the date of your injury and, once it runs out, you may be prohibited from ever bringing a claim. Depending on the state in which you reside, this period could be as short as one year measured from the date of your injury. Therefore, acting as quickly as possible is highly imperative.
