Should they claim
Recognising that large swathes of the public wouldn’t trust a personal injury solicitor further than they could throw him, one firm has decided to take on the challenge of restoring faith in this branch of the profession and in the worthiness of the claims they bring.
I know what you’re thinking: pity the poor PI solicitor, eh? It comes to something when they need to drum-up business and bolster their credibility using an online game. But let’s not be cynical – give it chance.
So, the idea is simple. You watch a selection of short clips in which people suffer various slips, trips, and RTAs and vote whether you think they should bring a claim. Personally, I think it’s missing a voiceover by Michael Buerke and the 999 jingle for dramatic effect.
Most people only think about instructing a personal injury lawyer if they’ve suffered some kind of accident or other misfortune. Otherwise, why would you?
And those who are in that unfortunate position, surely won’t be bowled over at the prospect of watching some poor chap going a over t from his bike following a head-on with for Ford Mondeo or an innocent pedestrian getting squished against a wall by an old dear with dodgy clutch control trying to reverse park her Citroën Saxo. If you’re recuperating at home with an accident claim pending, with only daytime TV and the thoughts of fashioning a noose from your clothes line to occupy you, do you really want to be exposed to anything that might tip you over the edge?
But what the heck, why not give it a go?
I wonder if there’s a board game version planned?
