Letter of Claim for Clothing Damaged by Dry Cleaners

A template letter for requesting compensation if you have had clothing ruined by a negligent dry cleaner.

Our clothes can mean a lot to us, making statements about our beliefs and lifestyle, so it can be very distressing if they are ruined before their time. When we send clothes to be cleaned, it is fair to expect that they will be looked after well and will be in the hands of a professional, so if this is not the case and your clothes sustained damage at a dry cleaner then it is possible to claim compensation for the loss.

This is a template a letter of claim or letter before action which can be sent to a dry cleaner with whom you have a dispute due to damage caused to your clothing while it was in their care. It makes a request for compensation equal to the value of the items damaged and any other losses you may have incurred.
