Q: Today I used a tanning bed at a salon. After the session, I sat up, and the glass beneath my butt broke. Causing a cut.
I told the person at the front desk, she looked at it, I let her know I will be back Monday, anxious to know what the owners had to say. Should I do anything else?
A: There may be a personal injury claim to pursue. You may have a legal case or claim to pursue. There are also practical considerations to such claims. If the injuries are minor in nature that do not result in medical care or scarring, it may prove difficult to find an attorney to handle the case or claim. Contact a local personal injury attorney to discuss further. Also, if you did incur medical bills, find out if the tanning business had medical payment insurance to pay for such medical bills. Good luck.
