Tanning Bed Injuries

In Milwaukee, winters are long and days are short. When people cannot catch the sun’s rays the natural way, many spend time in a tanning bed instead. These indoor booths darken the skin through exposure to artificial ultraviolet light. Unfortunately, tanning beds sometimes cause serious injuries to customers. Some tanning booth operators are inexperienced and irresponsible, and this can put customers’ health in jeopardy.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a tanning bed, contact Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today. You should not have to pay for the mistakes of a careless tanning bed manufacturer or operator. Compensation may be possible, so tell your story to a Milwaukee premises liability lawyer by calling (414) 271-0900.

Types of Tanning Bed Injuries

Of course, some studies have shown that excessive exposure to UV light can cause skin cancer. While it is your choice to expose yourself to UV light in a tanning bed, there are other injuries that you can suffer due to defective beds or negligent tanning salon owners. These health problems can include:

  • Burns from improperly calibrated machines
  • Retina damage from defective UV goggles
  • Heat stroke from faulty tanning beds
  • Exposure to bacteria or other pathogens in unclean tanning facilities

Tanning bed operators or manufacturers may be responsible for these injuries. Many tanning companies fail to train their employees adequately, and some bed operators do not follow proper safety protocols. The consequences for customers can be severe, long-term, and costly.
