He has now been given £1,000 as part of an out-of-court settlement.

See this is the difference between the UK and the US. People in the US would laugh at that pitiful amount.  People in the UK are like "Good show ol chap! You showed them! Pip pip etc" The minimum someone in the US would have gotten was $300,000.

It's a 99p shower gel. You can't tell if it's worked properly till after you urinate 99 times. Geez, the stupidity of some people.

Thinner skin in the genital area than the rest of the body could explain why only that area was burned.
As for why chemicals from his work got there?  Unless they soaked through both pants and undergarments, that sounds like the lawyers saving face.

I would be very, very careful about using anything called "Dettol" near the family jewels. I am only familiar with that product's use as the world's most disgusting cold remedy. It's one of those medicines that you have to be sick to use because if you aren't already violently ill, you will be after using it.

I have the utmost respect for military personnel, and I have absolutely no problem with homosexuals. But that is quite possibly the gayest thing I have ever heard, and I'm using "gay" in its strictly perjorative sense. That story is only made gayer by the fact that all of you would probably claim that it wasn't gay at all, and that engaging in balls-exposed fun-time with a roomful of other men just means that all of you are extremely confident in your hetrosexuality. Uh huh... as confident in your heterosexuality as the two or three guys in my college fraternity who always came up with suggestions like "Hey! Let's see who can smear the most IcyHot on their cock and balls!" when the rest of us just wanted to smoke dope.

Prolly someone else already corrected this, but the law doesn't work that way, not even in the US. You have to show actual DAMAGES. There is pain and suffering that can be awarded, but again, actual damages must be shown. There are also some penalties that can be tacked on (such as a company knowing a problem existed and doing nothing) and that's to prevent the bean counters from judging that 50 deaths is cheaper than a recall.

Many states have limitation caps on lawsuits. And the most 'famous' one that gets cited as an abuse of the system (the McDonald's coffee) wasn't even an abuse of the system or unreasonable when one looks at the actual facts of the case.

But companies have a very big vested interest in making it LOOK like these things are out of control, so they can get limitations placed on what they'll have to pay (and selling it as 'we' have to pay).

Not saying there's no abuses, but small settlements like this are far more common than not.

FrancoFile: calm like a bomb: Reacted with chemicals used when he was working?  Dude, why are you putting carpet cleaner on your junk?

He probably still had them on his hands, and washed his junk before anything else.

/which is weird, but it's England, so who knows


Or he scratched his balls because he had an itch. Washed his hands after work and during the shower he only had some carpet cleaner left on his balls. That way the soap wouldn't react in any other place.

MrHappyRotter: Hmmm.  I thought a red, inflamed penis was somewhat normal.


Mom?

Are we sure this wasn't a hair removal product like Veet?

Sometimes nanny states get you paid. You don't see any settlement for slatted chairs in the U.S. now do you?

Habeas Porpoise: "Pain was so much even his underwear hurt when it touched burns"

The real question is, how does he know what his underwear was feeling?


I didn't even know underwear could feel. Wait, does that mean underwear has other senses as well? I think I owe my underwear an apology.

fusillade762: calm like a bomb: Reacted with chemicals used when he was working?  Dude, why are you putting carpet cleaner on your junk?

My thought as well (now that we have some more reliable sources and I've decided to actually think about it. Thanks, Walker). Why would he only have burned his crotch and nowhere else??


Because he needed to get it *really* clean. Really, really, reeeeallly...reeeeeaaaallllyyyy...oh, Gooooooooooood...
