I want to start the legal process? 

We would always advise to try to come to an agreement with the hairdresser/company in question wherever possible, however if communication has broken down legal advice is probably worth seeking.

Ideally, you need a solicitor firm who are experts in hair damage claims, if you have not found one, please contact us at and we will be able to assist.

You will need to get in touch with your legal representative (your lawyers or solicitors) who will then contact us and request the report to ensure all relevant details about the case are provided to the medical expert. If unsure ask them to call for our free 15 minute phone consultation about your case.

Once we have received the instructions for your report, we can usually consult within 3 weeks and write the report within three weeks, depending on individual circumstances.
