I am already a bit against ambulance chaser lawyers, however I just saw an advert for this agency, showing a woman who claimed because her and a colleague "collided" in an aisle at work accidentally. Seriously. If you bump into someone now its a case for lawyers. For god sake.

I read something earlier this week about funding for legal aid being cut and the no win no fee rule going as well and at first I was pretty horrified but seeing this has actually made me think. I still think employers need to be liable for the health and safety of thier workforce but this sort of claim is ridiculous. AIBU.

Well, I used to know a girl who got whiplash in a car accident and suffered from neck pain for years after (not constantly) and she wouldn't sue because the woman who crashed into her worked in the same building. She didn't even know her! I thought this was a bit ridiculous and people should be entitled to damages if they are in pain. And sometimes they don't know how to go about claiming, hence the ads.

But bumping into someone? That's a bit lame. Scuse the pun.

Family member got run over about a year ago. Thankfully not too seriously injured, but spent 4/5 days in hospital. It was totally his fault, didn't look where he was going and just stepped out into the road. One year one he is still being phoned, about 3 times a week, by "lawyers" wanting to represent him if he decides to sue the totally innocent driver. He has no intention of doing so.
