I purchased a face cleanser called charcoal facial cream at TJmaxx in Secaucus . When I started using the cleanser I felt a burning sensation however I used it several more times until it finally damaged my face and disfigured and burned my skin . Im not sure if the cream had expired but tjmaxx is famous for selling expired creams . Today I noticed how bad my face and eye region have been damaged and will be going to my doctor today , Not sure how to proceed or if I need a lawyer to help with my damages or just call tjmaxx,
Take pictures to preserve the evidence and save the remaining cream in the jar. After seeing your physiican and learning if this condition will resolve your next step can be planned. If the facial damage is temporary this may be something to handle yourself by sending pictures and the purchase receipt to TJMAXX and asking them to pay for medical expenses as well as a nominal sum for damages. If it is a more significant injury counsel specializing in personal injury should be consulted.
Take pictures of your injuries. Be sure to get proper medical attention to your injuries. Consult a local personal injury attorney for further clarity. Best of luck.

Do as attorney Wolf advises and stop posting about this. Already you've handed the TJ a defense, "I used it several more times until it finally damaged my face." A good defense attorney will make that sound like you tried to harm yourself. Good luck.
