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
