Sunbed Injury Compensation Claim

Injuries from Sunbeds

Every year, at all times of the year, over 3 million people in the UK alone use sunbeds as both short and long term solutions to tanning skin. It can make people look and feel great and give us that look we're searching for, make us feel more confident, empowered and happy within ourselves.

But alarmingly there is a more unfortunate side to using sunbeds. In the past, over 83% of sunbeds were found to exceed the EU guideline limits on safe and comfortable UV radiation exposure.

At Manners Pimblett, we may be able to help receive the compensation you deserve and put you on the road to rebuilding your quality of life and ease some of the pain caused via the fault of someone else. Read on to find out more.

What are the most common causes of injuries via sunbeds that lead to claims?

Despite the measures the government has put in to try and decrease injuries and conditions brought about via sunbeds, there are still many cases reported all the time, there are many factors that can often lead to successful compensation claims, these can include:

  • Being given bad information by staff (on a number of topics- length of time in sunbed, how often you need to tan etc)
  • Faulty sunbed being used by salon
  • Excessive levels of UV rays being put in the beds
  • Lack of information in the salons about the potential dangers of tanning

If your claim is based on one of the above factors or any other that shows negligence or incompetence on the part of another person, company, establishment or authority then you could be entitled to make a claim

As always with Manners Pimblett, We offer NO WIN NO FEE* agreements on personal injury matters, call one of our experts today for more information.

I want to make a claim, what should I do next?

You should visit your GP to make sure that the condition you have obtained is definitely as a result of sunbed usage. Your GP will be able to provide you with the medical records that can aid both you and us with your case.

It is also a good idea to try and document your case. Your income may have been depleted as a result of you taking time off work for the injury to heal or having to take an even more significant amount of time off for medical examinations or appointments. All of these factors can play a part in getting you the compensation you are entitled to.

With our dedicated team, our professionalism, discretion and sensitivity in handling your case, at Manners Pimblett we can give you a first-class service and one that could get you maximum payment from the court.
