Obiter was intrigued to read the Daily Telegraph’s advertisement feature on 'what to do if you're in a car accident' last week.

Sponsored by personal injury firm Lawyers4U, the article sympathises that being in an accident ‘can be a huge shock and it can often be difficult to know what to do next’. It adds that ‘fortunately, the personal injury solicitors at InjuryLawyers4u are on hand to give you the help and advice you require’.

Obiter would be remiss if we failed to remind you of the Daily Telegraph’s commitment to claimants getting the ‘financial compensation you deserve’. In the past year Telegraph headlines have included: ‘Compensation culture poisoning our society’, ‘Compensation culture putting curbs on school trips’, ‘Litigation culture draining billions from hospitals and schools’, ‘Whiplash claims add £90 a year to car insurance bill’, ‘Lawyers told doctors to exaggerate crash injuries’ and ‘Explosion in compensation claims ahead of referral fee ban’.

Obiter could go on, but we can feel a sore neck coming on.
