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.

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.
