Bad Infectious Tattoo - Medical Bill Reimbursement
From: Jessica Category: Select Type of Accident Date: 03 Mar 2008 Time: 17:23:55 -0500
Briefly describe what happened. My 14 yr. old daughter had a nose piercing done at a local tattoo parlor -1. without consent 2. with improper tools. With-in 2 days it became terribly infected. We went from the pediatrician, to the ER and then were sent to a plastic surgeon! We were quickly informed that the procedure was done incorrectly, using screw-back Earring. Am I entitled to medical bill reimbursement? Days lost of work? Her pain, suffering and scarring?

It is unlikely that the
tattoo parlor or their insurance carrier will pay for medical expenses or lost wages until they are forced to. If they are, it is almost certain that they will only do so in exchange for a complete release from all claims including your daughter's claims for pain and suffering
You should contact our office directly to discuss this matter in further detail in order to protect your rights and those of your daughter.
