Your view of how insurers operate is optimistic; mine is cynical. Is your view based on anything more than hope?

Having seen the pictures of the box and comparison equipment It occurs to me that including that in the initial contact on the basis that 'you used this when this is available' may help.

yes I agree - its a whole branding thing they are going for... Its the "look at us we've got splinters and we bench press tyres - lifting weights is so old school." Its actually why I don't do it.. I did my research and concluded it wasn't an effective training regime for someone like me.

Balances have to be found.
People have to be free to do things which might hut them, and those tht provide such services need to ensure that risks are minimised, explained and understood.

I have a question:

If the damages being sought are within the realm of a small claim court and as I understanding it that means you cannot claim legal costs, how does CFA work?

I did a bit of research, and articles talk of contingency fee arrangements and bridging agreements.. I concluded that with the CFA route the Solicitor basicallly takes 25% - 40% of the claim, but no doubt brings a greater prospect of a win and potentially at a higher rate. Given the small damages, so far, there hasn't been much interest in the 2 or 3 CFA firm he's contacted. Not because their is no claim, but because there is no margin. It seems.

Diy. Did the organisation fill out an accident book? Was your friend provided with a copy of the form submitted to the HSE?

I doubt this will have been reported to the HSE.
