Tanning Bed Dangers

Tanning beds can be a convenient way to quickly and more comfortably darken one’s skin tone when compared to tanning outside, but there are also some risks associated with using tanning beds. Most people are aware that long-term use of tanning beds can cause skin cancer, but there are other injuries that can occur in tanning salons that many people do not know about. Injuries resulting from faulty tanning bed equipment or employee negligence are more common than one would think. Fortunately, if you have suffered one of these tanning bed injuries, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Common Injuries from Tanning Beds

As tanning salons become increasingly popular, it is important that people become aware of the potential dangers of using tanning beds. Common injuries that can happen during a single visit to a tanning salon include:

  • Severe burns from improperly calibrated or malfunctioning tanning beds
  • Slip and fall accidents from improperly maintained facilities
  • Infections from improperly cleaned beds
  • Eye damage from defective goggles

The unfortunate thing about these injuries is that they are often preventable if workers take the appropriate precautions. Sadly, many manufacturers and tanning salon employees ignore their duties, which can lead to innocent people suffering serious injuries.
