I have been going to Body Details for hair and tattoo removal almost 5 years now. For the hair removal part of the procedure it is much like getting a hair cut. For the same reason you don't bounce around I have been with the same lady for several treatment now with 6 to 10 weeks In between visits. Just before my last visit I get a call from them saying the lady that has been doing my treatments no longer works there. 1 key point to this is that I started the treatment areas at different times. I first went for my facial hair and the front of my neck and a long time later decided to do the back of my neck. Basically the settings for the laser are very different. During my last treatment she did not look through my file and just assumed all was the same. I was left with burn marks and scar
Negligence actions are premised on duty, breach, causation, and damages. It sounds based on what you have written that all of those elements are present and you would have cause to pursue a claim. Personal Injury actions in Florida are done on a contingency, thus you should speak with counsel to discuss your options.
Mention this posting if you call and we will provide a telephone consultation at NO charge.

I agree with the other attorneys that have answered your question but I am not familiar with "Body Details" and would point out that this procedure may qualify as a medical procedure in which case you would need to comply with Florida's laws regarding medical negligence. As for whether you are right to want to sue, that of course is a personal decision. However, the American justice system is the place where these types of disputes are supposed to be resolved. You should never be embarassd or shy about standing up for your Rights especially when you have been permanently and painfully injured due the negligence of someone that charged you as an expert to perform a service and then carelessly neglected to ensure that it was performed correctly.

You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights.
