To make a tailor accident claim with Accident Advice Helpline, your personal injury must have happened in the last three years and must have been caused by someone else. You may feel unsure about your ability to claim or if there is enough evidence to show how someone else was to blame. At the first stage, you should not let this stop you from checking your eligibility. Simply call us on our free, 24-hour helpline to find out more.
There may have been several instances in the past when you suffered a minor injury. You may have cut or grazed yourself repeatedly, without any of this affecting you seriously. Over time, as you have worked through many tailoring assignments, you have likely improved your skill and minimised the frequency of relatively minor accidents.
To make a tailor accident claim, your injury must have had a serious impact on you. This is easy to judge – if your accident led to more than a minor cut or graze, you are likely in a good position to make a claim. A colleague may have cut you or you may have had a fall because you were in an unsafe building.

You need to show who caused your accident and tell us if there is any proof of this. For example, you could have witnesses who can support your claim – perhaps your tailoring colleagues or people who were with you in your workshop at the time of the accident.
The benefits of claiming accident compensation
There are two main benefits to claiming accident compensation. The first is that you can receive a sizeable amount of money as recognition that the other person was to blame for your accident. In itself, this may be a sufficient reason to claim, but you should not underestimate the potential financial impact of your tailoring accident on your life. In effect, being injured, whether physically or mentally can mean you incur all sorts of unexpected financial costs. These could include medical fees or travel costs relating to your medical care.
The second main benefit to claiming accident compensation is that you can obtain a sense of closure with your accident. As long as the person or company who caused your tailoring injury refrains from compensating you, there is a sense that they have not fully accepted responsibility for it. Therefore, receiving compensation can be a big psychological boost. You can take some comfort in obtaining justice, and feel free to focus on your future.
