The sharks are circling
Maurice Blackburn has received a flood of calls about the theme park accident that killed four adults, including from people who want their own bad experiences on Dreamworld rides to be recorded.
“A wide variety of people have called. People who have been directly involved, people who have been witnesses, people who weren’t even there but have a story to tell,” the firm’s personal injury principal Alison Barrett told AAP. Ms Barrett said the law firm was in the process of gathering information relevant to the Dreamworld tragedy, but most people weren’t interested in any compensation that might be offered down the track.Yeah, right. Then why phone a law firm? I would suggest the “flood of calls” is a beat up by Maurice Blackburn to put themselves in the public’s mind as they and the public work out how they can benefit from the incident. Just to be sure we know where they are coming from the spokesperson lays the blame for the deaths on the previous LNP government;
She said members of the former LNP government, and specifically former attorney-general Jarrod Bleijie, bear responsibility for sliding standards. “They have played a very significant role in that. It was Jarrod Bleijie’s portfolio. And it all occurred under their watch.”Got that? Call us and we will make you rich, even if you were just there on the day and eating an ice cream well out view of the incident. Oh, and it was the evil, uncaring conservative government that caused the deaths. Politics and avarice all while people are still grieving.
