Tanning Bed Injuries
Due to time constraints and other factors, many people frequent tanning salons rather than lay out in natural sunlight to get the tan look he or she desires. Despite the popularity of these ultraviolet light machines, tanning beds and salons can put customers at risk of injuries such as burns and even infections because of manufacturing errors or employees who do not act responsibly.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of a negligent tanning bed manufacturer or salon employee, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Common Tanning Bed Injuries
Tanning bed companies are required to warn users of the risk of skin cancer, but there are also many other ways you could suffer short-term injuries. Many of these injuries happen because of negligent workers or faulty tanning beds. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Infections or illnesses from unsanitary rooms or beds
- Eye damage from faulty goggles
- Heat-related injuries from faulty timers that are set for too long or fail to go off
- Burns from high temperatures
Holding the negligent premises owner or manufacturer responsible for your injury can help discourage future carelessness to protect others who utilize tanning salons.
