The law sometimes favours women, say serious injury solicitors in the UK
The law generally does not favour women over men however, there are some instances when the battle of the sexes can favour women say serious injury solicitors in UK legal firms. For many people reading this that may seem as though men are being discriminated against and with the arrival of metrosexual man, in time there may be cause for it to be seen as discrimination for now it is not the case.
So where does the law favour women and the level of compensation they may receive over men? Serious injury solicitors in UK legal practices say that when it comes to awarding compensation to women for scarring of their skin they may be favoured by courts and in some instances may receive more compensation.
The view sometimes taken, is that if a woman has received an injury that has marked visible parts of her body like her face, arms, or legs she may get more compensation. How long this may remain as a part of the compensation process with the arrival of metrosexual man who prides himself on how he looks may be in question. Serious injury solicitors in UK legal practices say that on the surface it could appear like discrimination.
Until anything changes and new precedents are set then things will remain the same. Many of these specialist serious injury solicitors in UK legal firms work with independent companies like Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) who have devoted their existence to helping people who have been the victims of an accident claim the compensation they deserve.
Accident Advice Helpline do not worry about age or gender when it comes to claiming compensation and neither do the expert legal firms they partner with. There are just three criteria they look for;
- The accident occurred within the last 3 years (unless in the case of a child)
- Medical advice was taken
- Was the accident your fault
Serious injury solicitors in UK practices say that these are the only things that must have been met and with the last point was the accident your fault the answer must be no. As with all compensation claims it is best to check with a reputable company like AAH to make sure you have your facts straight.
Of course scaring or marking of the skin is traumatic for any person and you cannot help thinking that the law will change soon on this matter. The law is always looking to establish what is fair and just. Founded on the principle of equity the idea being what would reasonable people do if they were in the same circumstance? Serious injury solicitors in UK legal firms themselves still say every compensation claim is pursued with the utmost fervour to win the compensation that is rightly due to accident victims no matter what gender they are.
