Personal injury solicitors and their clients often get vilified in the media for creating the so-called ‘compensation culture’.Critics are quick to dismiss workplace health and safety legislation as being so much ‘red tape’ which stifles enterprise and they rush to stigmatise accident victims as scroungers. If these people could see some of the tragic cases firms like Bonnar & Company deal with, their attitude towards hurt and injured workers would surely change. According to the TUC website today: ‘Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don’t die of mystery ailments, or in tragic “accidents”. They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn’t that important a priority. Workers’ Memorial Day commemorates those workers.’ Worker’s Memorial Day is held on 28 April every year, all over the world workers and their representatives conduct events, demonstrations, vigils and a whole host of other activities to mark the day. In South Lanarkshire, the local authority and the Unison branch are holding a seminar on health and safety, followed by a commemoration and wreath laying at the Workers Memorial plaque in the grounds of the council head quarters.
