    Leeds claims


    People considering raising Leeds claims for injuries or illnesses resulting from having parts of their body tattooed can rely on the practical experience and expertise that we here Accident Advice Helpline have gathered in the 15 years since we’ve been trading. Together with our in-depth knowledge of personal injury claim law, this practical experience is a great asset upon which our clients can draw.

    Why tattoos sometimes cause injury

    Tattoos are created by penetrating the skin with a sharp needle and injecting coloured ink. Today’s modern tattoo machines can pierce the skin up to 3,000 times per minute. In most instances, tattoo parlours and machines are kept hygienically clean, and having a tattoo does not endanger your health. However, if the tattooist or tattoo parlour is lax about their hygiene, needles can become infected and cause diseases such as dermatitis, hepatitis, tetanus, tuberculosis and HIV.

    Injuries from having your body tattooed can occur for a number of reasons. For example:

    • Tattoo needles (containing bacteria) may be reused;
    • If the tattoo parlour is dusty or dirty, the injection site can become contaminated;
    • The tattooist may not wash their hands;
    • Tattoo needles may not have been correctly sterilised;
    • The tattooist could have a transmittable disease or illness; and
    • Chemicals in the tattoo ink could be contaminated.

    If you’ve been injured as a result of any of the above then you should be compensated, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we can assist you.

    Start Leeds claims by taking the 30-second test

    Whether its Leeds claims, Leicester claims or Lincoln claims, the best way of beginning the compensation claims process is by taking the 30-second test. You can do that here on this website via our compensation calculator. Once you’ve found it, just follow the simple on-screen instructions.

    Open Claim Calculator

    If you’re someone who doesn’t like issuing personal information over the internet, though, you can always use our free helpline service and chat to a member of our customer support team. They will go through the process with you. Once you’ve completed the test, your potential claim will be validated or not in theory, and if it is validated then you will be given an estimate of the size of the compensation award you could win.

    Calling Accident Advice Helpline free of charge

    As well as going through the 30-second test, you can use our helpline to discuss any queries or concerns you may have with a member of our customer support team.
