    Dress fitting accident claim


    Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with a dress fitting accident claim if you have sustained a serious injury in a public place. Many people fail to see the potential hazards associated with trying on clothing in confined spaces such as changing rooms. If you have been injured while trying on a wedding dress or other garment then you could be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if someone was to blame for the accident. To talk through the options available to you with a friendly advisor, ring our free 24-hour helpline today.

    Duty of care

    The most common dress fitting injuries are trips and falls. When people try on different dresses, they often leave hangers or other clothes on the floor. If a shop assistant did this while they were attending to you then the shop may be liable. The shop has a duty of care of customers and must ensure that certain health and safety standards are upheld so accidents are prevented. If they fail to adhere to these standards then you can make a claim. For example, if a stool you sat on in a dressing room was not well maintained and you subsequently fell and broke a bone then the expert solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can claim on your behalf to secure a monetary sum to cover the losses you have incurred due to that injury.

    We have over 14 years of experience in handling claims for clients. We offer the best advice and legal representation available and always work diligently for a successful outcome. If you think you are eligible to make a dress fitting accident claim, then call us on 0800 180 1423 or text claim365 to 88010. We will match you with a solicitor after taking down all the important details about your accident.

    Expert solicitors

    Our expert personal injury solicitors will need these details to prove that the shop owner was to blame for your accident. To maximise your chances of a successful claim, we recommend that you note down the date of the accident and explain how and where it happened. You should also include any contact details of witnesses and information about your injuries including any medical diagnosis from a GP and the treatment you received for the injuries.

    If you have been forced to take time off work then our solicitors will also need documents that prove your lost income. We can also claim for other financial expenses such as prescription costs and medical bills so you should keep any receipts that show these outgoings.
