Retail shopping is usually a relaxing and enjoyable activity but there are occasions when unforeseeable accidents can occur. If you have recently been trying on a wedding dress or other garment and have been injured in the process of doing so then Accident Advice Helpline can provide dress fitting accident advice. If a shop owner or other person was at fault for your injuries then you have a right to make a personal injury compensation claim. This claim will enable you to recover the costs associated with your serious injuries including loss of income and other fees and bills. You can find out how much you may be able to claim in just thirty seconds by using our online compensation calculator.
Call for advice
We recommend that you call one of our advisors on our free 24-hour helpline if you are eligible for compensation. They are always willing and ready to answer any of your questions and will tell you all the options available to you. All we will need is the details about your injury. If you were injured in the last three years, someone else was to blame and you received medical attention at the time of the accident then you could be owed a substantial sum. The amount you receive will depend on a range of factors including the severity of your injuries and the extent of a third party’s negligence.
Duty of care
Trying on clothes in changing rooms and other tight spaces can be hazardous if the floor is wet or other objects such as chairs and stools are near. For example, you may have tripped on a loose piece of clothing that you did not know was there. It is a shop assistant’s duty to ensure that all floor surfaces in the shop are well maintained and free from dangerous obstacles. You can make a no win, no fee claim if their negligence contributed to you being involved in a serious accident.
Slips, trips and falls in public places can have a devastating impact on your daily life. A broken bone or back injury can hinder your mobility and make it extremely difficult to do simple tasks. This can also force you to take time off work and leave you with mounting bills and other financial worries. A claim can address the balance of justice. While Accident Advice Helpline cannot personally punish those in the wrong, we can use our expert solicitors to work for you. They will do everything they can to maximise your monetary gain.
To increase the chances of a successful personal injury claim, we will need sufficient evidence to prove the negligence of a third party such as a clothes retailer or shop owner. You can help us by writing down all the relevant details about the accident. This includes the exact time of the accident and the names and addresses of any witnesses. Photographs of the accident scene are also useful.
Call us on 0800 689 0500 to see whether you can make a claim with one of the United Kingdom’s leading personal injury law firms.
