Sunbed Injury? – How Much Compensation? – National Cases – Call Us > 0800 699 0079 – £££
Sun Bed Injury
About 3 million people in the UK use sunbeds throughout the year as a solution to tanning skin.
The tanning industry is a self-regulated industry which means the tanning salon you use may not have properly trained staff who aren’t competent in advising you on how to use the sunbeds and any health and safety precautions which go alongside using the sunbeds.
Despite the measures governmental bodies have imposed in a bid to decrease injuries and conditions brought about via sunbeds, there are still many cases of sun bed injuries reported as the industry isn’t well regulated.
If you have used a poorly maintained sun bed and have consequently been left with sun bed related injuries, Tyler’s Solicitors can assist you in making a compensation claim.
Can I claim compensation for a sun bed injury?
Government legislations require all tanning salons to be cautious when providing sunbeds for use of the general public.
Though this is the case, many suffer injuries following sun bed use due to staff mistakes or error. In such cases you have a right to claim compensation as you’ve suffered injury due to issues beyond your control.
Common types of sun bed injuries
As you could imagine, there are several different types of sun bed injuries. If your claim involves any of the following types of injury, you’re entitled to make a claim. As follows:
- Sun bed Injuries caused by using inadequately maintained apparatus
- Burn Injuries caused due to sun bed duration being incorrectly timed by a staff member or faulty timers
- Injuries caused due to lack of communication from staff members surrounding the potential dangers of sunbed use
- Burns due to the settings of the sun bed being set too high
- Injuries caused due to gaining improper information from staff regarding the duration of time to spend on the sun bed, how many times you should use the sun bed etc.
