Strange stories about bizarre personal injury claims are bread and butter for Britain’s local and national newspapers.
One of the most recent tales doing the rounds concerns James Andres Bassos, who brought a personal injury claim against Etihad Airways. On a flight from Sydney to Dubai back in 2011, Mr Bassos suffered a back injury after being forced to sit next to an obese man who coughed a lot, which forced him to twist and contort his body for long periods of time.
It is a story that had appeared in the UK’s leading national papers and websites, but people ought not to dwell on the somewhat comical tone deployed by the mainstream press. Personal injury claims are extremely serious by their very nature and, moreover, they can often be highly technical.
