Shop ‘til you drop in Caithness
Last minute shopping trips before a holiday are always stressful. There’s just so much to remember: the sun cream lotion factor 35 for dad, the inflatable shark for Tina and the new sexy bikini size 10 for you. You’ll also need to get enough dog food to last a fortnight, so your neighbour won’t have to get it while she’s looking after your pooch. Mustn’t forget to send off grandma’s birthday card and present at the Post Office, since you won’t be here to hand it to her personally this year!
Without looking left or right, you dart across the busy road, weave in and out of shops, drop a shopping bag, pick up your groceries from the pavement and getting up, you wave at a friend sitting in a cafe window on the other side of the road. You hurry to meet her and — wham!
You’ve just walked into an oncoming motorcycle’s path and now it’s the young rider’s turn to start a very long holiday: the one where he’s never returning to work because he’s paralysed. Yes, you walked away unharmed, but the young man, swerving to avoid hitting you, collided with a bus. His spinal cord injury means he won’t ever play rugby with his friends, he won’t be dancing with his fiancée again and he certainly won’t be returning to his job as estate agent showing clients around new dream homes.
Now you are sitting at home anxiously eyeing the letter box, because any day now you’ll be getting a letter from an accident solicitor in Caithness outlining a demand for compensation.
