Seriously, I hope no-one has been badly injured, but immediately someone complains of neck pain you can almost hear the tills ringing.

Thats probably because when you get pushed,shunted or knocked forwards from behind, your neck snaps quickly because it sits in top of your abdomen, if we had no necks it wouldn't happen.
Very simple science if you do some homework :)
But kind of agree with the whole compensation thing, country gone mad on sueing someone for literally anything. If it was a bad smash I hope the people involved are ok, and if they aren't then who am I to say they shouldn't file for a claim if it's genuine neck pains. What would anyone do given the same situation.. All, have a good think now..
