The Process of Filling a Chemical Hair Relaxer Lawsuit

Chemical hair relaxers have been a staple in the beauty industry for years, as many have used the product to make their hair straighter.

Many individuals who have used chemical hair relaxers could never have imagined the dangers associated with the product.

If you have suffered due to a chemical hair relaxer, you have the right to pursue compensation for your losses by filing a lawsuit. The following steps will help ensure the success of your case so you may hold the liable party responsible.

Consult an Experienced Attorney

When you begin the process of filing a chemical hair relaxer lawsuit, your first step should be to seek the legal counsel of an experienced attorney. A lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and options regarding your case while also assessing the unique details of your case to help guide you through the most appropriate steps to take.

Gather Evidence

When filing a chemical hair relaxer lawsuit, the collection of key evidence is crucial to building a strong case against the manufacturers of the products that caused your harm. Your lawyer will help you collect the evidence that will play a critical role in demonstrating the link between hair relaxers and the increased risk of health issues. Additionally, this evidence will help demonstrate the negligence of hair relaxer manufacturers that owe you a duty of care to ensure their products are safe for use. Examples of evidence that may be relevant to your case include the following:

  • Medical records
  • Purchase receipts
  • Product packaging
  • Documentation of your experience
  • Authoritative insights from professionals like medical experts

Your lawyer will be able to help you determine what evidence is needed to include in your unique case.

File a Complaint

A complaint is an official legal document that outlines the allegations against the manufacturer of the chemical hair relaxer products and how their negligence led to your cancer or other injuries. Your lawyer will help you draft and submit the document to the appropriate court to successfully file your complaint.

Once you have filed the complaint, you must serve the hair relaxer manufacturer, or the defendant, with a copy of the complaint and a summons. This process informs the defendant of the lawsuit and allows them to respond. Once the defendant has been served, your lawyer will help you prepare for the trial proceeding that will come. Chemical hair relaxer lawsuits can be complex. That is why it is crucial that you have a trusted lawyer on your side, ensuring your rights are protected as you pursue the justice you deserve.
