If you are going to be injured arrange for it to happen in a national disaster where there's TV coverage and a public inquiry.
Under our laws the chances of the bereaved or seriously injured winning a claim for compensation are remote.
Who wins and who loses is as big a lottery as the Grand
National. The 'lucky' victims are those who can find someone to blame - the law demands proof of negligence. Proof of need is not enough. So for many more victims of accident and disaster there is no compensation.
Roisin McAuley asks if there should be a change in the law to put need before blame. Researcher LOUISE HIBBINS Producer JOHN DRURY Editor COLIN CAMERON BBC North West
