End to Whiplash Claims ?

The Government has signalled a major attack on firms undertaking small level personal injury claims . In the chancellors statement on the 25th November George Osborne announced that the Small Claims limit would be increased to £5000 and there would be an end to general damages for small level whiplash claims .

This measure designed to protect the motor insurance will remove many ordinary members of the public from pursuing legitimate claims and has been condemned by the Law Society .

There is expected to be a consultaiton on the issue shortly .
