Woman´s Claim for Scalp Irritation Compensation Resolved Out of Court

A woman, who developed an allergic reaction after a hair colouring treatment at her hairdressers, has resolved her claim for scalp irritation compensation out of court.

Thirty-three year old Dublin sales executiveGrainne Moynihan – made her claim for scalp irritation compensation following a haircut and hair colouring treatment on 11th November 2010 at the Dylan Bradshaw salon in Dublin.

Grainne alleged in the claim against the hairdresser that she developed an allergic reaction on her ears, neck and scalp which had manifested as an itchy and irritable rash after the visit to the William Street South salon.

In her claim for scalp irritation compensation, Grainne noted that she had to seek medical attention after the irritation developed, and that her doctor had prescribed her a course of oral steroids and antihistamine medication.

Coiffeur Salons Ltd, trading as Dylan Bradshaw, denied their liability for Grainne´s injury and the Injuries Board provided Grainne with an Authorisation to pursue her claim through the courts.

Coiffeur Salons Ltd entered a full defence against the claim which was scheduled to be heard at the Circuit Civil Court before Judge Matthew Deery.

However, before the hearing was due to start, Judge Deery was advised that the claim for scalp irritation had been settled out of court for an undisclosed amount and that the case could be struck off.
