The Blame Someone Else Culture

Just seen one of the many ‘Accident Claim’ adverts where people get paid out for being stupid.

This guy was working off a ladder (Stupid Mistake Number 1) drilling the wall when the ladder slipped because it wasn’t footed or secured (Stupid Mistake Number 2). Yet this guy claims and gets paid out £7000! It was his fault on both counts, yet someone else pays him out for being stupid! Guess who that is – everyone else by paying increased insurance premiums.

How have we come to this culture of ‘somebody else’s fault’?

Why are people refusing to accept responsibility for their own actions (or inactions)?

Why don’t the courts throw these cases out with “It was your own stupid fault – you got what you deserved”?
