Compensation culture comes to Scotland

Daily Record, via Fark:

A STUDENT left paralysed after falling 30 feet from scaffolding on a night out is suing the firm who put it up.

Ross Campbell says K2 Specialist Services should accept some blame for his accident because their scaffolding was too accessible and unsteady.

He said: “I want to know where the share of the blame lies.”

Unless there’s more to this story than the Record is reporting – such as the scaffolding firm putting big signs up saying “free climbing frame! Particularly good if you’re pissed!” – then it’s pretty obvious where the blame lies, isn’t it?
