At Thurlows Compensation Lawyers we regard this as an absolute misconception.
At Thurlows Compensation Lawyers we take the view that compensation claims are one of the most important areas of the law. The reason for this is as follows:
By way of an example many years ago one of the large supermarket chains appeared to have a policy that it was cheaper to have the night shift stack the shelves and when the night shift finished if the job was not completed the boxes were simply left in the aisles. People were repeatedly falling over the boxes and injuring themselves yet notwithstanding that the supermarket chain continued with the policy.
As the number of claims and payouts were made, the policy was changed and so to the injuries stopped. Similarly changes have been made in numerous other areas as a result of compensation cases. Workplace safety, road construction design, motor vehicle design are all examples of improvements that have been made to our day to day lives as the result of compensation claims making the entity responsible and taking responsibility for their actions and if their actions are not appropriate paying compensation.
