    Solicitors in Newhaven

    Like many people who have suffered an accident, you may make the assumption that you cannot make a claim. But as a quick scan of the history of personal injury complaints shows there are all sorts of injuries which should be accounted for. So, before you look for a solicitor in Newhaven think about some of these more outlandish claims.

    The horsie woman

    A woman who was bit on the lip by a horse while at a stables, successfully sued the owners of the horse by claiming their mistreatment of the animal had made it bad tempered and aggressive.

    A private accident

    A rider on a motorcycle successfully sued for impotence caused by a serious injury to his private area when the motorcycle he was riding was hit by a car. Apparently he caught himself on the fuselage of the bike.

    Hot coffee

    A woman entering a branch of Macdonald’s in the USA managed to sue the owners for mild burns she sustained because the coffee was hot. If you’d ever had a coffee in Macdonalds and thought it was unreasonably cold – this could be the reason.

    An errant pin

    Another story from Stockport in 2012 relates to a woman who was trying on clothes in a department store. The tag, which was judged to have been improperly applied, fell off and she impaled her big toe on the pin. She sued for over £1,700.

    The toilet of fire

    Few can relate to the misfortune of one gentlemen in the USA who worked at a coal mine. While going to the toilet, he was unaware that just below him a pipe had sprung a methane leak. He soon found out however, when he threw away his cigarette into the bowl, resulting in a painful fireball, which netted him compensation totalling millions of dollars.

    Finding a solicitor in Newhaven

    All these claims come from the wilder spectrum of personal injury claims and as some of them come from the US they don’t hold any clues for what might happen here in the UK, but they do shine a light on some of the many different types of claims that can be found not only in the UK but around the world.
