Claimants being bold about mould

For some years insurers have been concerned about potential personal injury claims from mould in buildings and claims are now occurring in the US. In one case, a woman has been awarded $3.3m after being left permanently disabled when she fell sick due to mould in her Arizona apartment. She claimed it was untreated for 2 years, although the building owners dispute that mould is the cause and plan to appeal. Insurers are concerned similar cases could be brought in the UK.

And staying in the US, a recent report says that 66 children a day need to visit Emergency Departments as a result of shopping trolley accidents. Possibly no surprise, but how about the shop worker who suffered a serious neck injury in a shopping trolley incident after a prankster hoisted a trolley up the shop flag pole and when she untied the rope it fell on her head!
