Genuine injury requires redress

TWO investigations commissioned by the Government found that the so-called 'compo culture' does not exist, and is more a perception than a reality.

This perception is fuelled by widespread misconceptions. People who try to claim for simple misfortunes, or for injuries from their own lack of common sense, do not understand the law. Negligence must be proven for a case to succeed. Someone suffering a needless injury inflicted by another's negligence should never be criticised for seeking redress.
