(Akiit.comWhen it comes to making an accident claim, you will have all heard of the obvious claims, such as road traffic accidents, slips and trips, and incidents in the workplace. However, you can make a claim for literally any type of injury, so long as it was the result of someone else’s error or negligence. Keeping that in mind, read on to discover more about four different types of accident claims…

Tanning Treatments That Have Gone Wrong – Tanning treatments are very popular nowadays, yet there are incidents where they go wrong. Have you suffered a skin rash as the result of a spray tan? Perhaps you have suffered eye damage because you weren’t provided with effective goggles when using a sunbed? If so, you will be able to make an accident claim for such incidents.

Dental Negligence – The dental industry is of a very high standard in the US. Nonetheless, there are incidents whereby mistakes do occur. You may have sustained an injury as the result of a procedure that has gone wrong or you may have been given incorrect dental care advice. You can make a claim against the dentist in such an incident. It is advisable to make a formal complaint first.

Product Liability Claims – Have you suffered an injury because of a faulty product? From beauty creams, to furniture, to electrical items… you can make a claim due to an injury from literally any type of product! After all, the item should not have been released onto the marketplace. Not only can you receive money for your injuries but also the equipment that you have needed to replace. This relates to both individual and business claims. Let’s say you purchased faulty equipment for your medical practice, not only should you get the money for the equipment refunded, but you should be able to buy a better quality piece to replace it, whether you are looking for a portable ultrasound machine for sale, a new faxing system, or anything else that has broken and caused damage. Just make sure you keep receipts for stuff like this because you will need to prove it in order to claim.

Bad Waxing Treatments – Last but not least, waxing is an extremely popular form of hair removal, however, there are cases where this treatment goes wrong! If the wax is too hot the customer could end up with burns. Other incidents include allergic reactions and the skin not being pulled taut enough, which can result in the skin ripping.

As you can see, there are a number of different incidents that can result in claiming. Essentially, it all comes down to whether you were to blame for what has happened to you or not.
