    How to claim faulty sunbed compensation


    There’s no denying that you look and feel your best when you come back from your summer holidays – and having a tan plays a big part in that. But with the UK’s changeable weather, it can be hard work maintaining a golden glow all year round. That’s why over 3 million people in the UK use sunbeds every year to achieve a healthy tan and boost their confidence. You’re probably already aware that using sunbeds in the long term could increase your risk of skin cancer, but even using them once in a while could leave you injured. Claiming faulty sunbed compensation for injuries sustained at a tanning salon is easy with Accident Advice Helpline – our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    Injuries caused by faulty sunbeds

    Sunbeds which are not properly set up could mean exposure to excessive levels of UV rays. Faulty timer switches could mean you spend longer than you intended under the lamps, whilst malfunctioning sun bed controls could mean sunbeds overheat, leading to burns. Lacerations are also common when things go wrong in a tanning salon. A burst or broken bulb or damaged sunbed could cause lacerations to your face and body, which could lead to permanent scarring. Burns to your skin can increase your risk of skin cancer, which could impact your health in the future.

    It’s up to the tanning salon owner to ensure that the sunbeds they provide are safe for members of the public to use. That means they should be regularly inspected and maintained to a safe standard. Using cheap or inefficient sunbeds may save salon owners money but customers could be left injured, leaving the salon liable for paying personal injury compensation in the event of a claim for faulty sunbed compensation.

    No need to go to court

    The good news is that it’s relatively simple to start the ball rolling on your personal injury claim – just get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out whether you could be eligible to claim compensation. Whether you’ve suffered burns or lacerations from a faulty sunbed or have been affected by skin cancer, we can help you get the compensation you deserve, and in most cases you won’t even need to go to court.
