Law Society demands fair hearing on personal injury

Posted in: Personal Injury 

The Law Society has told the Transport Select Committee’s inquiry that hearing only one side of the argument on whiplash claims will penalise genuine accident victims.

In a letter to Ms Louise Ellman MP, chair of the Transport Select Committee, the Law Society insisted that the government hear both sides of the debate.

Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, president of the Law Society, said:

“This is a debate in which all too often the perspective of only a single side – the insurers – is heard. Such a one-sided debate has the potential to distort the facts, leading to, in the Society’s view, ill-considered and disproportionate policy-making.”

Submitting written evidence to the Transport Select Committee’s inquiry into whiplash claims, she asserted that government proposals to increase the small claims limit in personal injury cases largely stem from propaganda, generated by insurers.

In her letter, she added:

“I very much hope, therefore, that your Committee is able to hear from all sides, including the solicitors’ profession, during the course of your inquiry.”
