What’s the Problem?
The suit alleges that Plaintiff Rita Perna-Allor was working as a professional hair stylist at the Blue Water Spa and Salon in Monroe, Michigan, in Jan. 2017 when the Hot Tools Curling Iron (MODEL # 1130) she was using shorted out.
Perna-Allor was rushed to the burn center at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio, but
could not remember her address or phone number, the complaint states. She had difficulty speaking and fat had liquefied in her arms, which were covered with dark spots. Gangrene had set in within 2 weeks of the incident, according to the lawsuit.
Other injuries included severe electrical shock to Plaintiff’s right fingers, hand, wrist and arm including the vascular and nervous system of her entire body, the complaint states.
Perna-Allor is suing Helen of Troy, the company that manufactures Hot Tools Curling Irons, for failing to have an adequate handle and other safety features, and Blue Water Spa and Salon for not having properly grounded (GFI) outlets.
