In any sport, from boxing to ballet and beyond, there’s always the chance that any one of us, can, and will be injured. 
 
According to a recent survey, the most common sporting injuries are, in no particular order: shin splints, sciatica, pulled hamstring, torn cruciate ligament, concussion, and the good old-fashioned groin pull. And yet it may not always be the person partaking in the sport that gets injured, MG Legal, accident injury solicitors in Lancaster, have also successfully helped those just spectating, receive an award of compensation, too! 
Apparently, the passing of the Civil Liability Bill will stop insurance fraud arising from road traffic accidents. Aviva, insurers of 1 in 4 motor vehicles in the UK, will say that last year, 2017, it detected £59 million pounds worth of fraudulent injury claims (the writer is unsure if this sum relates also to vehicle damages, credit hire, and solicitors’ costs, arising out of the road traffic accident claims). Aviva, obviously jubilant in the knowledge that the Civil Liability Bill has passed though the Commons, and the Lords, will say that they are presently investigating more than 17,000.00 road traffic accident claims they believe to be fraudulent, and that motor insurance accounts for 60% of all fraud detected by their offices.

We’ve all heard it. Whether it’s down the local, or in some less highbrow magazine.. ‘some bloke from Timbuctoo received a trillion quid for his personal injury settlement, when he lost a fingernail at work’… 
 
But did he, and are these stories all part of the urban myths that have a habit of frequenting the quarters of the less-sober of us…?
