We continue to strongly campaign against the changes to personal injury reforms introduced by the government in the Prisons and Courts Bill.
The bill did not have time to finish its passage through parliament before dissolution, due to the general election to be held on 8 June. This does not mean that these reforms would go away, as they can be revived under the new government.
The bill introduced:
In parallel, the government announced it will increase the small claims limit for all RTA claims to £5,000, following its consultation reforming the soft tissue injury (whiplash) claims process last year.
We believe such changes would undermine the right of ordinary people to receive full and proper compensation from those that have injured them.
We will continue to oppose these reforms and will engage with the new government and parliament to ensure our message is heard.
