Am I eligible to make a sunbed accident claim?
It is important to note that you can start an accident claim under specific circumstances. We can help you make sense of this, and also see if your sunbed accident applies and if you can claim for it. Generally speaking, the rules are that your accident should have happened in the last three years and that it was caused by someone else.
When you call us, you can ask for free advice and insight into your eligibility to start a sunbed accident claim. You may have been injured because the sunbed you were using broke, trapping you or impacting your arms, legs, torso or head. You could have suffered bad burns, or the sunbed may have been incorrectly set, turning your skin into an orange or red colour.
Here it is important to be clear about how the accident happened. Another sunbed salon customer may have been at fault, walking into your sunbed as you were using it or negligently trapping you into it. This could give you a solid basis for a financial compensation claim. Also, the sunbed owners or managers have a duty to ensure that the salon environment is safe for customers and staff. If you were injured by a faulty sunbed or because the salon was unsafe to be in, you could start a claim on the grounds of a health and safety violation. To discuss this in more detail with us, simply call today.
How can I prove someone else caused my accident?
If we think you have a credible sunbed accident claim, we will help you through the legal process. Part of this process will involve gathering evidence to support your case. Evidence can include documentation to show you were in the sunbed salon at the time, such as a receipt or invoice. Any witness statements or CCTV footage could also help. Depending on the nature of your accident, it may help to get your medical record from your doctor to show what happened to you.
