What is Compensation Culture?
The phrase ‘compensation culture’ is often used in today’s society and not always in a complimentary manner. It is often viewed as political correctness gone mad.
But what is compensation culture?
Does it actually exist?
This can be defined as a state whereby people assume that they are automatically entitled to compensation for the slightest thing. This applies to any situation irrespective of blame.
People claim compensation for an injury in which no-one was to blame. These claims are often made for spurious reasons and in situations in which common sense should have prevailed.
We all have rights and responsibilities which include not only ourselves but for other people. Many people are well informed about their rights but not always so about their responsibilities which has led to a culture in which ‘suing’ someone is seen as the norm.
It appears to be the case that some people view personal injury compensation as money that is easy to access and lying there waiting to be claimed. Their attitude is that it is always worth trying to claim compensation even if they do not have a case to do so.
At Benjamin Law, we discourage false claims, absurd claims, and those which could have been prevented by using common sense from the genuine claims.
The fact remains that many people are injured every year as a result of an accident which was not their fault. This causes stress and misery for both the victims and their families and is a life-changing experience. If this applies to you then you have a right to pursue a claim for compensation for your injuries.
