Rebecca Brown on Personal Injuries in Coronation Street

Personal Injury Claims have been a hot topic in Coronation Street recently after hapless and hopeless Tyrone Dobbs suffered an injury falling through the ceiling of his loft extension.

Tyrone's misfortune arose after the firm building the extension were persuaded to use the wrong type of wood by villainous Todd Grimshaw. Despite offers from the builder, his friend Jason, Tyrone chooses to use a Personal Injury Solicitor to help him to recover the compensation he deserves.

Canter Levin & Berg's own Rebecca Brown, keen soap watcher and Personal Injury Solicitor that she is, decided to take a closer look at Tyrone's situation and at the problems that can occur when trying to calculate the value of any injury without appropriate medical evidence...

"It was of course only a matter of time before gormless goody goody Tyrone Dobbs was a victim of pantomime villain Todd Grimshaw, who for good measure has also caused his goody goody gormless brother Jason a lot of grief too. With talk of a no win no fee personal injury solicitor in the offing should Jason have cause to panic?

The storyline of Todd getting Jason’s building firm to use the wrong building materials to build Tyrone’s loft extension has been a surprisingly realistic example of how small family businesses like Jason’s can come unstuck with their own insurers."

You can read the full story over on our Sud's Law blog, where Rebecca and some of our other solicitors have been exploring the legal implications of some of soapland's most outrageous storylines.
