Justice Secretary Chris Grayling says marketing from so-called 'ambulance-chasing' law firms has contributed to a culture of trying to shift the blame for accidents.
“There is an industry out there that’s trying to get you to claim,” he told the Sunday Telegraph.
"“I think generally speaking we have become a society where people are more willing to have a go, where there’s marketing to encourage them, and I think perhaps too little inclination to say ‘it was me that messed that up’," he added.
"We are a bit of a society that is a bit too inclined to blame someone else.”
