  4. Just saw this on the news... An accident on the M9 was reported on Sunday 5th July - Police failed to investigate until yesterday, 8th July. They found two people, one dead, one critically injured (and who has since been placed in an induced coma). The couple had already been reported missing, so you would have thought the Police would have clicked when whoever reported the accident advised it was the same vehicle the missing couple had been using !!
  5. Hello I am trying to get some advice as I am getting contradictory information all over the place, especially from the police. Sorry if it is a long post. Yesterday 2 bailiffs attended my home in relation to a magistrates fine in the name of my daughter. I answered the door to two rather large chaps, and asked them what they wanted. They said they had a warrant of control and were going to enter the property to take goods. My response was, "no you're not". This went back and forth a little with one of them telling me that under schedule 4 of the Magistrates Co
  6. About a week ago at work I called a lift to put some goods in and I received a nasty shock off it (it went through my wrist and out onto the trolly that I was holding with my other hand) Since then the wrist that I used to press the lift button hurts.

On friday the manager I reported the incident to was covering for my managers day off and asked how I was etc and I told her it was still playing up and she made me promise to seek medical advice w

  10. Hey guys, While I was out at my local supermarket a week ago the trolley collector was struggling to keep control of a MASSIVE line of trolleys. He'd hit one car and as I walked towards him the trolleys vveered out of control and he yelled for help. They hit another car but not before I'd managed to slow them somewhat but bent my wrist back in the process and sprained it.

My wife told me he'd also hit our car when i got b

  14. This is probably in the wrong forum but not sure where it should go so apologies in advance. I had a back injury at work in 2003 and my condition worsened so that I needed major surgery in Feb 2006. After the surgery I immediately started one of these 'have you been injured' claims and was put in touch with a solicitor who quite frankly wasn't that interested and I was naive. I did get sent to a specialist at the time who agreed I had suffered injury, I was offered in July that same year 8k which the solicitor told me to accept as my employer wanted to settle out of court.
