Laser treatments are used in many different procedures such as laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, laser blemish removal, acne treatment, and more. While these procedures have been shown to be relatively safe most of the time, accidents do happen. These "accidents" are most-often caused by medical malpractice, but can also be caused by a defective piece of machinery.
If you're suffering from laser burns and/or scarring that may last a lifetime, we invite you to call (or email) us for a free consultation. Our Dallas personal injury attorneys work on contingency, meaning that you never have to risk a penny of your own money to have us pursue your claim. We have extensive experience negotiating, settling, and litigating malpractice claims, and are happy to review the facts of your case and explain the legal options available to you for no charge.
Laser treatments involve the concentration of an infrared ray on a certain area of the body for a set amount of time. Patients undergoing these procedures say it is relatively painless, and it's not uncommon for physicians to apply numbing gel to help alleviate discomfort.
Infrared radiation carries numerous risks, with one of these being serious burns. Should a healthcare professional leave an infrared laser on for too long, patients may suffer burns, skin discoloration, or may even be put at an increased risk of developing skin cancers that may spread to other body parts with time.
Individuals with tattoos tend to suffer burns more-frequently because of how laser hair removal devices are designed and programmed. These devices are set to identify and isolate hair follicles from the rest of the skin area and then destroy them in a targeted manner. Tattoos, due to their ink, are often mistaken as follicles, leading to laser devices targeting the ink, which then leads to formation of burns and permanent scarring.
A woman in Cook County filed a lawsuit alleging negligence when she suffered severe, second-degree burns after undergoing a laser hair removal procedure at a cosmetic facility. She reportedly suffered burns in the shape of a checkered pattern on her legs. This case was made even more distressing given the fact that the technician who performed the procedure did not have medical training background required.
Medical malpractice plays a large role in these types of cases, and some experts suspect that at least half of the medical spas that offer laser treatments are not operating in full compliance of the law. If you'd like to discuss your options, call us today.
