Accident Solicitors Exist to Help You

There can be a negative perception of accident solicitors which has been created by people  in the press and media in general. There doesn’t seem to be any real reason why they’ve done this, other than the desire to create a villain that is responsible for some imagined harm against small businesses. Of course, accident claims are paid for by insurance companies and are only launched against employers that aren’t properly looking after their workers to begin with.

In reality, accident compensation solicitors are there to help you. If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then they are the people you can go to. Without accident solicitors there would be no recourse available to an employee who has suffered due to their employer’s negligence, or for a person injured in a road traffic accident that they weren’t to blame for. These people could potentially be left with no way to care for themselves as they’re too injured to work and don’t have enough money to afford the care they need.

Not only do accident claims help those who have been injured to recover and to get their lives back to what they were before the accident but they also encourage employers to look after their employees properly and ensure that their work environment is safe. Although insurance policies will cover compensation payouts, accident claims are a lengthy process which can take up plenty of time. An employer who has a history of claims can also find the amount they pay for insurance swiftly increasing.

So, accident claims and accident solicitors have some important benefits and really are designed to help you out.

How do Psychics do what they do?

There are plenty of ways that people are able to make psychic readings, whether they’re predicting future events, contacting loved ones that have passed through to the other side, or using remote viewing to help you find where you’ve put your keys. To some people it comes naturally, whereas others may make use of Tarot reading, astrology or some other art to help them see through the veil and into the realm beyond.

If you talk to psychics you’ll find that every one has a different story of how they came to realise they had psychic powers, though there may be similarities between them. Some will have discovered their psychic abilities at a very young age and may be descended from a family of psychics. Others may have realised that they had a psychic talent much further on in their lives and the discovery may come as a shock. Some will have had visions, some will hear voices, possibly of a loved one that has recently passed, and yet others will find that they see the world in a new way, able to focus on people’s auras, or look into the past or future.

How a person discovers their powers is likely to guide how they focus their powers in future. A young girl who sees visions in a puddle may become a fortune teller making readings from a crystal ball. A man who hears voices mixed with the ocean waves might play sea noises whilst making a reading, helping him to focus on those voices. Everybody is different in how they harness their talent, so you should be prepared for anything if you decide to get in touch with a psychic.


Although exhumations are widely considered taboo or sacrilege in most countries and cultures that bury their dead there are certain situations that result in bodies being exhumed and UK Headstones being disturbed. If for example, there are suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a person the police may try and get the body exhumed for further investigations and to try and determine the cause of death.

In some cultures, graves are opened after a certain period of death. Southern China exhumes a body after a period of so many years and the bones are removed, cleaned and dried. They are then placed in either a ceramic pot for reburial or in a smaller coffin which can then be taken home by the rest of the family.

Remains may be moved if the cemetery in question is being located somewhere else, this would only occur after local planning and religious requirements have been met. In some rare cases exhumation may occur to help with the study of dissection, gibbeting or posthumous execution like Oliver Cromwell.

Many notable individuals have been exhumed to help with study and for public display; the most prominent of these figures are mummies from Ancient Egypt. In Hong Kong where property is at a premium, government run cemeteries exhume burials after 6 years under an order. The remains are then either privately collected for cremation or reburied in an urn or a niche.

Jewish Law forbids the exhumation of a corpse and other cultures continue to have differences and conflict regarding exhumation rules.

Boy sells his toys to pay for his Dad’s Headstone

It’s a sobering tale that left many with a tear in their eye. A young nine year old boy in America had been saving his pennies for an iPod or iTouch until the day his Dad tragically died and the family couldn’t afford any Headstones.


The boy’s father who was a keen outdoorsman and loved nothing better than camping and hunting with his son died of an abdominal aneurysm, leaving his young family devastated. Like many young families, making ends meet is a challenge each and every week so having the luxury of disposable income is a far cry from reality.

The young boy, Blake, used some of his favourite toys to mark where his father had been buried and whilst he was busy saving any penny he had to buy an iPod or iTouch, he decided that he would hold a garage sale comprising of his old toys and any money made would go towards paying for his dad’s Gravestones.

Touched by his enormous selflessness, his mother agreed to try and match what he made to contribute to the headstone. Blake contacted his local radio station to generate some interest in the garage sale and as you can imagine, was inundated with people touched by the story. People flocked from far and wide to attend and left donations. The response became overwhelming and the young family managed to raise far more money than was needed for his father’s gravestone.

All the money left after the gravestone had been bought has gone into an account and is to help Blake with his education in the future.

How Has No Win No Fee Changed?

There used to be some controversy around ‘No Win No Fee’ claims and whether they were really beneficial for people wanting to pursue an accident claim. A lot of people held the view that even if you felt you had a legitimate accident claim there was no reason to go down the ‘No Win No Fee’ route as they’d lose out on a significant amount of compensation. People felt it was better to pay the fees of a regular lawyer as, if the claim was successful, they’d end up having less than the lost compensation. The ‘No Fee’ part also didn’t persuade people as they were aware that the solicitors wouldn’t take on the case unless they felt it was a guaranteed win.

This has all changed, however, when ‘Win No Fee’ options became available. ‘Win No Fee’ means that even when your claim is successful, you won’t be the one paying the accident solicitors. The way this works is that if you win your claim then the party responsible for the accident in the first place must also pay your legal fees. This means that you get to keep every penny of your compensation; none of it goes towards paying your lawyers.

When you combine ‘No Win No Fee’ and ‘Win No Fee’ options you end up with a system which means anybody can begin an accident claim, if there is enough evidence for them to do so, and not have to worry about paying their lawyers at the end of it.
