The good people of Essex have always been interesting. A merchant in 1892 accidentally injured his eye while throwing rice at a wedding and was awarded the modern equivalent of almost £1,500. Today, though, personal injury claims are a little more sensible which is worth bearing in mind if you’re looking for Southend-on-Sea ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers.
Southend-on-Sea ‘no win, no fee*’ work claims
Of course, Essex doesn’t have a monopoly on moments of injury. Take the example of a man who at the turn of the century walked into a pole while looking at another accident taking place, or the husband who injured himself while leaping from his bed to catch his wife who was in the process of fainting, or the Swansea born artist who was unable to stand up in a gale back in 1886 and was paid £30, which is getting on for two grand in modern day money.
Of course, there are also those who are the victim of a cruel twist of fate, such as the worker who decided to have a sneaky cigarette while on the toilet. At the end, he tossed it down the toilet without knowing that a gas leak had taken place. He suffered severe burns to his more delicate parts.
Over in the US, though, you find the brave men and women who have taken their own accident prone tendencies and turned it into a lucrative source of revenue, especially in fast food restaurants. Take the woman who burned her lip on a cup of coffee and sued for millions. Or the man who bent his finger back unsuccessfully attempting to open a door – who also received a hefty sum. Then there is the man who took revenge after watching an advert for a product which claimed it would attract scores of bikini-clad beautiful women.
Making a claim
Back in the modern day and the real world, though, personal injury law is a bit more hum drum. If you make a claim, the courts will make a very sober assessment of how much it has cost you as well as awarding a sum for the injuries sustained. This can go from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands. However, you will need to prove your case, which means lots of evidence. And to reduce the financial risk of making a claim, find Southend-on-Sea ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers as they will only charge for their services if you have won your case.
