Every year, millions of Americans get tattoos at reputable tattoo parlors. Unfortunately, some individuals who visit less reputable parlors may suffer infections if the parlors fail to properly sanitize their machinery and do not use new, clean needles each time they tattoo someone.
Tattoo infections often lead to permanent medical conditions that require constant treatment. If you or someone you love suffered an infection because of a tattoo parlor’s negligence when sanitizing its machines, contact the Indianapolis personal injury lawyers of the Hankey Law Office at (800) 520-3633.
Spreadable Diseases and Pathogens
Though not a common problem, tattoo infections can have serious effects on individuals when they do occur. Among the most common infections spread through contaminated tattoo needles and machinery are:
- Skin diseases
- Other blood-borne diseases
Individuals who suffer these infections may find that their ailments are permanent and require expensive medical treatment to manage. When a tattooed individual finds that a contaminated tattooing needle or machine is to blame, he or she may sue the responsible tattoo parlor.
Victims of tattoo infections should seek experienced legal help before filing their lawsuits, as any personal injury lawsuit requires the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
