|Woman Sues Hair Salon For Negligence|
A 35-year-old woman told a court that she developed pain in her neck after allegedly sitting for 40 minutes at a washing basin in a Peter Mark hair salon.
The case was "resolved" on undisclosed terms yesterday after Andrea Dunne had claimed €38,000 in damages.
Ms Dunne said in the Circuit Civil Court that she felt pain in her neck a few hours after she had left the salon on Grafton Street, Dublin, on May 3, 2008.
The court heard, as the pain progressed through her left shoulder, she went to her GP who prescribed anti-inflammatory and pain-killers. She was treated with intramuscular injections while on holiday in Spain.
She sued Peter Mark for damages. The hair salon, which entered a full defence to Ms Dunne's claim, denied negligence.
