The art of tailoring is much more rare nowadays, but demand for quality workmanship continues to keep many tailors busy. It is not without risks – so you may find yourself asking if you can claim for an injury as a tailor. Your job is likely to be relatively low-risk – indeed, you may have experienced no worse than a few pinpricks or scissor cuts in your time working as a tailor. That said, sometimes more serious accidents can happen in the workplace, and you may have been seriously injured or traumatised as a result of tailoring. If this is the case, you can call the experts in personal injury compensation at Accident Advice Helpline.
We have been making successful accident claims for fourteen years. During that time, we have represented thousands of people on a no-win, no-fee* basis, with our expert lawyers taking on a wide range of cases. You should not be concerned that your tailoring accident is too rare – compared with more common types of accidents like road incidents. We can provide you with the expertise that suits your case.
The risks of tailoring
The most obvious risk while working as a tailor comes from handling your equipment. Sharp instruments should of course be handled with care, but you may have simply let something fall out of your hands, or made an excessively fast movement that led to a cut or other wound.
Where we can potentially help you is when your injury as a tailor was caused by someone else. A colleague or one of the people working for you may have injured you. An employee may have acted without proper care in handling particular equipment, injuring you in the process. Even if a stranger caused your accident, you could be in line for compensation. If you were asked to work in someone else’s home, or in a working environment run by another person or company, your health and safety should have been properly supervised. If this was not the case, your chances of claiming compensation are strong.
