If you don’t have a washing machine in your apartment, or even if you do and you need to wash larger items like your duvet, a launderette is a godsend. Chances are, your local launderette is a great place to do washing at a competitive price, and you can even use the tumble dryers there. But what happens if you’re injured by faulty launderette equipment? Well, you could make a 100% no win, no fee* personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline, and the launderette owner could be held responsible for your injuries. But what sort of injuries could you suffer in a launderette?
Launderette accidents and injuries
You might be wondering what kind of injuries you could sustain at the launderette – well, here are a few examples:
- Leaking washing machines could lead to a wet floor, which could cause a slip and fall, leaving you with back injuries or broken bones
- Faulty tumble driers could catch fire, causing burns
- You could suffer an electric shock from a faulty machine, which could lead to a fall and a serious head injury or long-term damage to your heart or other organs
If you have been injured by faulty launderette equipment, it could be that the launderette owner is to blame, if they haven’t maintained their equipment properly. Equally they could hold the product manufacturer responsible if it turns out that your injuries were caused by a manufacturing or design defect. But you don’t need to figure all this out on your own if you are considering making a personal injury claim. You can get advice in confidence from Accident Advice Helpline, and we’ll be able to tell you whether or not you have a viable claim.
How much compensation could you get?
The amount of compensation you could get if you’ve been injured by faulty launderette equipment really depends on how serious your injuries are. For example, if you’ve been left permanently scarred from burns after a tumble dryer caught fire, you could find yourself receiving a substantial settlement.
