The current plague of injury claim ambulance chasing

How many other people are being harrassed by these people?

Calls to my landline, calls to my mobile, texts to my mobile ... signs up everywhere in our area ... No Win, No fee Injury claims!

I haven't had an accident so I don't why I am being targetted, however, a family member was involved in a car accident in December and he got a call yesterday from someone who made out he was from the other guys insurance and £100k had been put aside for the injuries!  My relative thought it was really nice of the other guys insurance company to care so much, but my reaction was that this was pretty amazing, as the 'other' guy was not at fault and there were no injuries either!!! 

So how many people actually get sucked in by the lies, or persuaded there may be a bob or two in it for them, and how much does our insurance go up as a result?

It is only one step away from the alleged relative in Outer Mongolia who died leaving £20m in a bank account and you too can have a share if you just send your bank details. And yet this is apparently legal.  Corrupt and fraudulent.

Compensation culture

Sadly I appear to be missing out on the phone calls as I could have quite enjoyed telling them what I thought about them!

But this whole culture of money for nothing really infuriates me. Whatever happened to an accident of any sort being followed by a sincere apology and both parties going off happy?!! Or where some damage / loss was incurred it being made right at no profit?? These days it seems to be that if you so much as stub your toe you have to sue for millions and do your very best 'woe is me' look for your interview in the Daily Wail.

Simon Cowell has a lot to answer for - everyone now thinks that they can make a fortune without putting in any effort.

Do you think that if I sued him for the emotional distress I experience every time I see his smarmy face it would stop me making the final of this year's X Factor and bagging that record deal (even though even my furry creatures leave the room when I open my mouth)? :)

We have an answer phone at home and caller display. It's amazing listening to two macihines talking to each other as most sales calls are now automated.

I had a few of these recently, seems i neglected to tick a box saying I didn;t want sales calls when on an insurance comparison site. So watch for that.

three of us here in the office, with consecutive direct dial numbers just had identical calls fom an identical (overseas) call centre about our accident.

Also I got a glut of them after my car was stolen, so the insurance companies obviously sell on your details, but not details of the claim as i was out of the country when it happened.

the worst though are the IVA sales calls. I got one on Friday, started off telling me they were "implementing government Regulations". I saw red and the quasi official wording and the assumption I had unserviced debt, and demanded to speak to supervisor. He was a waste of time, just kept telling me most people are over the moon to have someone get rid of their debt.

 

ARGHHHHHHH

 

p.s Missold PPI is another one. Had one numpty tell me I might have signed up for some and not realised.

Ahh but if there is one thing I learned from Law at University (and there were only maybe 6 things in truth) it is that you can't sue for emotional distress caused by something seen on a tv, you have to be there to sense it in all its glory.  Apparently a Noel Edmunds program killed a man, via a bungee accident, and half the viewers tried to sue.  'Oh no!' cried the lawyers, 'emotional distress can't be suffered through a tv screen!'.

It's not suffered "through" the TV screen - it's suffered by the person watching.

You might not have had an accident, but maybe demographically (as in, being a woman driver) they are targeting you as a higher risk driver?

This is sad that many firms

This is sad that many firms are fooling people by alluring them with good amount of injury claims and trick them. We must be aware of such fake calls and emails and consult a reputed and well known lawyer for settling our personal injury case (if any). If you are inured in any accident and want to claim for it then it is important to enquire about the best lawyer of the area who can provide proper advice.
