Day spas have become one of the most favorite ways to relax and improve overall health for many residents of Kansas City and all across Missouri. When you visit a day spa, you expect to leave its premises feeling refreshed, renewed, and happy. But many times, people end up being taken to a hospital, in pain, and very frustrated because they were injured in a day spa accident.
Unfortunately, with day spas springing up all across Kansas City at a rapid rate, the occurrence of day spa injuries is also on the rise. Time and time again, our Kansas City day spa injury attorney at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., is hearing stories of day spa visitors being injured by a masseuse or another day spa worker or a hazardous condition on the property.
Day spa injuries can range from back and neck damage from negligent massage, to traumatic brain injuries from slip and fall accidents, and even psychological, emotional, and physical trauma from being a victim of sexual assaults at day spas.
Yes, negligence, carelessness and wrongful acts are becoming commonplace at day spas in Kansas City and elsewhere in Missouri. And the most bizarre part is that you can get injured even at the most reputable and prestigious day spas in Missouri and during procedures or treatments for which you paid a fortune.
Luckily, you may be able to recover damages and seek compensation for your day spa injury. And our experienced day spa injury attorney in Kansas City is going to explain how you can do that.
Your legal strategy to recover damages after a day spa accident depends on the type of your injury. For example, when a masseuse at a day spa uses improper massage technique, the visitor can end up suffering from back or neck damage, fractured ribs, broken bones, strains and sprains, and torn ligaments, among other injuries.
But massage therapy is not the only service provided by day spas that can cause injury. Body treatments and skin care are also one of the most popular services provided at day spas in Kansas City. As you can guess, many things can go wrong during dyes, facial peels, and the use of glues and cosmetics.
Unfortunately, not all day spas exercise a high standard of care during body treatments and skin care procedures, which often results in severe chemical burns, lacerations, burns, skin and blood infections, and even disfigurement.
But day spa negligence is not limited to massage therapy, body treatments, and skin care. Many visitors of day saps enjoy Swiss shower, hydro-pool, hot tub, indoor and outdoor pools, and other water-based procedures. However, even something as harmless as swimming in a pool or relaxing in a hot tub can result in severe injury when members of day spa staff are not following safety standards. For example, incidents of near-drownings at day spas are not unheard of. The same can be said about first-degree, second-degree, and even third-degree burns in hot tubs, as they are very common at day spas when workers fail to ensure that the temperature and chemicals are at safe levels.
Needless to say, slip and fall accidents in changing areas and near pool areas and hot tubs are also very common causes of day spa injuries. Regardless of how you were injured, do not hesitate to speak to a premises liability lawyer Kansas City from Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C.
