PHILADELPHIA – A woman who alleged she suffered serious injuries and severe chemical burns on her head and neck from a Philadelphia-based hair salon has settled with the business.
On Jan. 2, plaintiff counsel for Yolanda McNair filed a praecipe to mark the instant litigation as settled, discontinued and ended upon payment of costs only. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
McNair, of Philadelphia, initially filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 27, 2017 versus BeeYouHair, LLC, also of Philadelphia.
According to the lawsuit, while receiving services at the defendant’s premises on April 15, 2017, McNair said she suffered severe and painful chemical burns on her head, face and neck from chemical hair coloring and/or related products provided by defendant that was negligently and carelessly applied and/or removed and/or partially removed, causing serious and permanent personal injuries, including serious impairment of bodily function and serious disfigurement.
The suit added the defendant premises failed to regard the plaintiff’s safety and rights, failed to use due care in the aforementioned situation and failed to comply with the standards of the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology, among numerous other charges.
Prior to settlement and for a lone count of negligence, the plaintiff was seeking damages in excess of $50,000, plus all costs and other relief the Court deems necessary.
The plaintiff is represented by Marc I. Simon of Simon & Simon, in Philadelphia.
The defendant was represented by Laurianne Falcone of Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, also in Philadelphia.
