We hear this a lot. #fairness4families
I despise explaining to clients how damages are calculated in cases where someone has died, particularly children. The law is so out of touch with reality and does not in any way reflect the harm and distress caused

More than half of babies born in 2021 were to parents not married or in a civil partnership - new data from @ONS. It means most new fathers in England and Wales would be denied bereavement damages if the worst was to happen to their children. The law is woefully out of touch.

This is very important: compensation is not paid for an accident or mishap. Find out more on page 10 #RealityCheck bit.ly/2m1KJmW
It's jarring to hear that so many workers have fears for their safety. Employers should take note. Fascinating insight on #healthandsafety and attitudes to risk from @LR_Foundation.

Just 2 per cent of safety incidents involving patient harm result in a clinical negligence claim against the NHS, according to APIL’s analysis of NHSR’s annual accounts.

When a loved one is incapacitated, perhaps in a coma, you might be worried about how your children are coping, or how the bills are going to be paid. The #SevereInjuryHelpHub provides a point in the right direction bit.ly/32B9J7i

We welcome the Patient Safety Commissioner appointment as a step in the right direction, but a 'champion for patients’ should be a PSC with wider-ranging powers and a broad remit. A cohesive strategy to reduce needless harm to vulnerable patients is needed bit.ly/3z2mUyr

Mesothelioma is an incurable lung cancer which cuts short the lives of people exposed to asbestos at work. With their families, they are suffering the heartbreaking consequences of past workplace safety mismanagement.

We're thinking of all parents who have lost a child too soon, particularly today #NBPD22 @achildofmine It's a sad fact that not all grieving parents are treated equally by the law on compensation for bereavement bit.ly/3vF9ozp #fairness4families

Great support for #IPWeek2022 from politicians from across different parties. Our vision is of a society without needless injury but, if that happens, to ensure those people receive the justice they need to rebuild their lives.

"E-scooters are eco-friendly and fun, but the number of casualties in collisions has already shot up by 181 per cent in a year and we’ve not even had the potential influx of the privately-owned ones yet”. #IPWeek2022 bit.ly/3ufErjU
