A woman, who needed medical attention for an allergic reaction to a hair treatment, has resolved her legal action against her hairdresser out of court.
Grainne Moynihan of Castleknock Park in Dublin took legal action against her hairdresser – Coiffeur Salons Ltd, trading as Dylan Bradshaw, located in William Street South, Dublin – following a haircut and colouring treatment she underwent on 11th November 2010.
Thirty-three year old Grainne claimed in her action that, following her visit to Dylan Bradshaw, she developed an allergic reaction to the hair treatment which manifested as an itchy rash on her neck, ears and scalp.
According to court documents, Grainne sought medical advice for the rash when it developed, and her doctor had prescribed antihistamine medication and a course of oral steroids.
Coiffeur Salons Ltd contested Grainne´s claim, and denied that the treatment she received had been negligent. The company entered a full defence against Grainne´s claim prior to when the case was scheduled to be heard by Judge Matthew Deery at the Circuit Civil Court.
However, before the hearing commenced, Judge Deery was told that Grainne´s legal action against the hairdresser had been resolved out of court for an undisclosed amount. The Judge struck the case from the records.
