Naval Injuries

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I read today of a Wren who had been in the Navy for 11 days and broke her ankle, she was awarded over £190,000 because she was too embarrassed to wear a dress, having seen her picture, its not only her legs that need covering up. What does the team think?
     
  2. To be fair I heard that she still can't walk after 5 years, don't know the full details.

    The PTIs now tell you to sit down and jump off the obstacle on the assault course that she injured herself on, rather than jump off it standing up as was the practice when she did it. (I did that assault course last month, see)

    Christ on a bike! And meanwhile the rest of us scrimp to keep the machinery turning in what's left of the MOB.

  4. sorry to disappoint you all but ..

    whilst I am not in personal injury these compo figs are calculated along very strict guidelines.

    1. What likelihood is it that she will be able to work again? So lost salary
    2. Pain and inconvenience
    3. general and specific damages.

    It is not likely that she got that amount of money without it being someone elses fault.
     
  5. Fair enough then. Consider ourselves re-briefed.

    Please don't beat me.

    Possibly not - she seems very well informed on the levels of compensation claims - she probably knows exactly how much it would cost her to give someone a good thrapping.... er beating! :)

    So, does that mean you can't afford the time to administer a beating - after all, we all know what inflated rates the legal profession charge! :)

  18. I would not lower myself by telling you my charge out rate!
     
  19. If I ever need a lawyer, I know who to ask. I suspect you'd leave the other side quaking in their boots.
