Solicitor from Wigtown airs his views on Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine programme
NEWS RELEASE: 23 April 2004.
Angus Logan defends accident and injury claims against compensation culture jibes.
A former pupil of Sandhead School, Dumfries & Galloway, Angus Logan featured in Jeremy Vine’s Radio 2 debate about the so-called “Compensation Culture” on Wednesday (21 April 2004).
Angus argued that workers often did not know their compensation rights regarding industrial diseases (such as asbestosis, asthma and industrial deafness) and accidents at work. He was of the view too that employers were sometimes unhelpful by not making accident report books easily available.
Mr Logan felt that myths were being currently peddled about a compensation culture which was more imagined than real. Compensation claims are a very vital legal right, he said.
Angus Logan attended Sandhead School in the mid-1960s, and later moved with his family to Newton Stewart. He currently directs Accidentclaims.com at Frazer Coogans, Solicitors at 44 Dalblair Road in Ayr.
Frazer Coogans employs twenty staff and offers a complete range of legal services - including residential, commercial and agricultural property conveyancing, property investment, wills, executry and estates, and accident and injury claims.
