Swan Attack

I’ve met some unlucky people in my life but this man has to be one of the unluckiest.

A man in Worcestershire was knocked off his motorbike by a low-flying swan.

An ambulance was called to the scene, and the man was taken to hospital for treatment on his broken collar bone.

Unfortunately the biker was unable to make a claim, because I’m afraid you can’t sue a swan. However, I’m sure if he could have then the bird in question would have had a large settlement to pay out.

It’s only the other week a man fell off of his ladder because a Pigeon flew at him. These animals are out of control.

Next it’ll be bulls charging into the back of cars causing whiplash and bees covering your wind screen causing you to spin out of control.

Knocked Over By A Car In A Flash

Well you think you’ve heard it all and then today I read the story of 18 year old Cherelle Dudfield in New Zealand.

After a night out with her friends drinking, Miss Dudfield was dared to flash passing cars on a busy road in the city of Invercargill. She was positioned on a strip in the middle of the road and ‘successfully’ flashed a few cars when her dare suddenly took a scary turn.

Miss Dudfield told reporters that she had seen a car coming toward her and decided to run. Unfortunately she was unable to get away and she was hit by the car. Miss Dudfield found herself in hospital after she had rolled across the bonnet of the car and cracked the windscreen! Luckily she managed to escape with only a few minor bruises and cuts.

Insurer Bubble Wraps Street to Avoid Accidents

A street in Britain with one of the highest number of motor claims has been covered in bubble wrap to make it safer.

According to The Times, the stunt was organised by Confused.com, and took place on Somerville road in Worcester. The entire street was covered in 1,500 square feet of plastic sheeting in an attempt to “highlight the need to be careful when behind the wheel”. Nothing escaped the wrapping, with trees, pavements lampposts and cars all wrapped in the bubble wrap to protect users of the road, which is known locally as “Accident Avenue”.

The activity was partially designed as a response to the increased number claims being made on insurance policies due to accidents caused by the recent snowy conditions with Will Thomas, head of motor insurance at Confused.com stating that some insurers had seen a “41 per cent increase in claims compared with a normal non-snowy period.”

Ho, Ho…Oh, Dear…Christmas Time At Home

Christmas time at home, it’s a time of festive joy and, groans, the annual visit from the distant family, but with so much Christmas joy under one roof there is bound to be an increased risk of hazards in the home. Christmas shopping, the kids, the money, the husband….They all contribute to you becoming stressed and tired. Alcohol is another big contributor, as well as excitement, decorations, mixing young and old, having a large number of people in the house at one time and even Christmas dinner! Here is just a few reminders on how to keep you, and your family, safe this Christmas.

Tis The Season to be Jolly

With the festive season upon us we have been investigating the weird and wonderful injuries that are sustained over the festive period. It is estimated that 80,000 people in the UK alone will take a trip to their local A & E department, with the injuries ranging from food poisoning, through under cooking the turkey to burns from people trying on their new Christmas jumper whilst having a lit cigarette in their mouth, 18 people alone were admitted to hospital for this very injury in 2000.

Lawyers Rock Well Weird Al Seems To Think So

Found this cool video in the deep dark recesses of YouTube. Its a rap / rock anthem from Weird Al Yankovic (remember him from the Michael Jackson send-ups – Eat It etc) and has personal injury lawyers as his main theme of poking fun at. The title of the vid is called “I’ll Sue Ya” and its from around 2006. So, sit back and enjoy…

Lawyers Jokes

Here’s our Top 7 lawyers’ jokes of the day. Ok, so everybody mocks us and makes fun of us. There are probably more lawyers jokes out there than there are non-lawyers jokes (seriously!).

I used to take mild offence at the level and sheer derogatory nature of lawyers jokes but not anymore – now I just appreciate that we are an easy target because we make up the butt of a very many funny jokes – So everybody likes to take a dig at the legal profession but hey which other profession can claim to have the best selection of jokes.
