Legal costs and the "corruption" of the current system
Some of you may have already come across Colin Berry. His wife suffered serious injuries following two washing machines falling onto her from a height of 30 feet. (To have one washing machine fall on you may be regarded as a misfortune; to have two looks … etc.)
Mr Berry wrote on one website: “My main aim is to publish this case throughout from beginning to end, just to leave something to the society of the future to ponder on”. If future society ever stumbles on his various blogs and videos it will indeed have much to ponder.
This video gives his views on solicitors who overcharge, amongst other things. The section on legal costs starts (so far as there is any start or finish) about 11 minutes into the video.
(If you receive the Legal Costs Blog via email you made need to adjust your security settings to view the video.)
I hasten to add that the views expressed by Mr Berry are his own and not those of the Legal Costs Blog or anyone associated with it.
