I took my 2.5 year old daughter to my hairdresser before our move out of town and the stylist braided it into a pony tail and put beads on the end. One of the beads she failed to pull down all the way. 2 weeks later while on family vacation I notice a smell coming from my childs scalp, I remove bow to find that the bead had embedded itself into my childs scalp. I informed the hairdresser, took a picture and took her to the emergency room, there was infection developing around the bead. I informed the hairdresser that I wasn't sure what the emergency room cost was but that she would need to pay it. She initially said she would try. I contacted her with the bill and now she is saying that it wasn't her fault and that my child could have caused the damage herself. Do I have a strong case if I take her to court? Do I need an attorney present? The bill was $122, but now my child has a bald spot in her head...what can I do?
