A female police officer is claiming compensation after tripping over a kerb in an unlit area.
Someone should have told her that the long black thing with batteries in, which she was given when she joined the force, is actually a torch

suffice to say

her chief isn't happy with her at all. I think it'll be thrown out because as you say - she was equipped by the police with a torch and was negligent for not using it in the dark. She'd not have seen a sign or markings on the curb.


I think this is appalling, frankly.

pretty much

all her 'colleagues' and senior officers, local MP's, the Police and Crime Commisioner are unimpressed with her, dippy mare.....:blink:.... My old Law lecturer once came into class with a split lip and bruises having tripped over a kerb, however as he said "you can't sue for stupidity!!".......seemingly you can! :huh:

Fingers crossed

You can sue, but that doesn't mean you will be successful.

Hopefully, the garage owner will have his costs awarded. That would serve her right.  :upset:

similar to these greedy gits

The man who was choking to death and was given the Heimlich manoeuvre sued the man who saved his life because he had performed the manoeuvre incorrectly firstly and had fractured and severely bruised this mans ribs. The accident where the woman had stopped breathing was given CPR by a person who had stopped to give her help and was sued because the CPR caused internal bleeding as the woman had broken ribs after being hit by a car. However in both cases these people survived, only to sue their rescuers.

It's sad, but unfortunately we have gone the way of america

If someone sued me for saving their life I'd go back and finish the job very incorrectly :blink:
