Making Sure Your Faux Tan Doesn’t Cost You More Than Just Twenty DollarsJuly 7, 2016
Tina (not a real person) was looking forward to being reunited with her college roommates for what was sure to be an epic bachelorette party weekend. They were going to head down to the shore and had paid for a condo a block away from the beach.
There was only one thing Tina had to do first to get ready. She drove to her nearest tanning salon to get a quick spray tan that could give her the kind of summery glow that otherwise would take time to acquire by sunbathing, a process that also carried the risk of sun damage. She had gotten spray tans in booths at least twice a summer since she began college, so she had become quite the pro. However, something seemed different this time.
Once she got in the booth and fired up the automatic spray dispensing system, her feet started to slide on the floor, which felt more slippery than usual after the first two sprays were done. By the time the fourth spray had completely covered her body, Tina had fallen and was lying on the floor of the booth. The salon’s staff member had forgotten to replace the booth’s foot slippers after the previous customer’s spray tan, leaving the floor dangerously slick.
When the attendant found Tina, she was passed out on the floor of the booth. She had suffered a concussion and severe back injuries.
While recovering from her injuries in the hospital, Tina called a personal injury attorney, who informed her that the tanning salon could be found negligent for not having the right precautions in place. Following the advice of her attorney, Tina filed a lawsuit against the tanning salon.
The salon fired the attendant who was negligent and thought that was enough to keep Tina happy. However, that didn’t account for her hospital stay, current medical bills, and the weekend full of memories on which she missed out.
The tanning salon giant’s lawyers were not backing down on a settlement and Tina’s legal bills were starting to pile up, not to mention the other life expenses she had to account for. Her attorney referred her to USClaims.
