Victorian era compensation claims show an unexpected familiarity

 Jul 18, 2011

Research into Aviva's archives has revealed that our ancestors made many of the same sorts of claims as we may see today. Nineteenth century awards of compensation for example were dished out to an individual who slipped on some steps whilst exiting a Turkish bath, a grocer who slipped whilst playing 'blind-mans buff' and an artist blown over in a gale. These findings resonate with the apparently long standing idea, that certain individuals owe us a duty of care to take precautionary measures to prevent such incidents occurring.
