If you’re one of the millions of people who absolutely has to try on clothing before buying it, chances are you spend a significant amount of time every year in changing rooms. Whether you’re a budget shopper or prefer designer brands, trying on that stylish pair of trousers or party dress ensures you get the perfect fit and style to suit you, which means less chance of having to return items. If you’ve been injured whilst in a store changing room, did you ever stop to consider making a claim for changing room injury compensation? Accident Advice Helpline has a great track record when it comes to helping our customers – so much so that we have been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.
How have you been injured?
You might be wondering what sort of accident could happen in a changing room. After all, you’re only trying on that pair of jeans, not abseiling or skiing. But you’d be surprised at the number of hazards that can be lurking in retail stores. Over the years, we have handled some of the following claims for changing room injury compensation:
- Lacerations from a broken mirror or damaged seating in the changing rooms
- Injured by a mirror or clothes hooks falling off the wall
- Tripping over clothes hangers or clothes
- Slipping on a wet floor
- Head injuries after hitting your head on a hanging rail or clothes hook
Whether you have broken your ankle after tripping over in the changing rooms or suffered a head injury which required stitches after hitting your head on a damaged clothes rail or hook, you could claim personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline.
