Cedar Rapids Ultraviolet Burn Lawyer
The Iowa weather does not always give you the opportunity to obtain the sort of tan that you might like, and a beach vacation or cruise may be outside your reach at this time. So it makes sense that you would turn to a local salon to get the glow that you were seeking. Unfortunately, you may have got more than you bargained for. Ultraviolet burns are a painful consequence of negligent tanning booth maintenance or operation, or perhaps a malfunctioning in-home unit. The health complications can be extensive, and they can be expensive.
If you have suffered burns as a result of a malfunctioning tanning bed or negligent tanning salon, contact the Cedar Rapids ultraviolet burn lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C. Call (319) 294-4424 to find out what we can do for you.
The Effects of Ultraviolet Burns
Ultraviolet burns are very similar to the sunburns that you may have previously experienced when you lingered a bit too long in the sun without adequate skin protection. But there are other dangers present in tanning bed mishaps that you would not encounter through sun exposure, and the burns that you receive through these artificial rays may be more severe due to the elevated intensity of the light.
Unsafe exposure to ultraviolet light in a tanning bed may cause:
- Ultraviolet burns
- Skin and tissue damage
- Corneal burning
- Disfiguring scars
You deserve financial compensation for your injuries. Contact the Cedar Rapids ultraviolet burns lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 for the aggressive legal representation that you need.
