ForensisGroup tanning salon expert witnesses work on cases where injury has occurred because a tanning bed was not used as intended, or there is a defect in the equipment of operation from the tanning bed.
Tanning salon operators are required to take great care in operating a tanning bed. They must provide safety equipment, like safety goggles, and give clear instructions to their customers. They also must advise the customers of the health risks involved.
An overexposure to ultra-violet (UV) radiation can increase the risk of injury and damage. Common injuries include UV “sunburn,” damage to the eyes, malignant melanoma (skin cancer), and burns from direct contact with a light bulb. In addition, customers may be injured by the lid closing on a hand or foot.
The use of some medications can also cause the skin to be more sensitive to UV light. Some physicians have faced litigation for failing to warn patients about the risk of visiting a tanning salon.
Our experts advise law firms and insurance companies about 30 state regulations governing tanning salons, issues of parental consent for minor customers, as well as Food and Drug Administration (FDA ) warning labels on tanning beds.
