Brazilian aspiring model Myrella Ikeda filed a $3-million personal injury lawsuit in a Manhattan federal court against the J Sisters salon, located in Manhattan, New York, after a visit in 2011 left her physically and emotionally traumatized, news.com.au reported on May 21.
Ikeda also accused Antonio Luis Rosa, the hairdresser in question, of being under the influence of drugs while styling her hair. The lawsuit states that co-owner Jonice Padilha called her afterwards to apologize and said that Rosa had taken drugs. Ikeda’s report indicates that her hair and scalp were burned when she left the salon. Later, damaged hair fell out. She was allegedly traumatized from this incident and discouraged from continuing to pursue her career.

While any injury has the potential to cause serious pain and lasting damage, few are as painful and potentially-devastating as burn injuries. Burn injuries can come from a number of sources, including heat, electricity, and chemicals, but all have the potential to expose victims to unthinkable amounts of pain and suffering, in addition to long-term dangers such as deep infection and scarring.
While nothing can fully erase the effects of a burn injury once it has happened, there are several treatment options that can help provide burn victims with the relief and protection they need. These include topical treatments, meant to promote healing, ease pain, and fight infection, pharmacological treatments, meant to help manage pain and fight infection, and finally, surgical treatment options, usually used to treat the worst burn injuries.
If you or someone you love has suffered a burn injury because of another party’s carelessness or recklessness, you shouldn’t be forced to shoulder the consequences of this injury on your own.
