According to a UK law firm, injured people are set to be left to their own devices when attempting to make accident claims or win personal injury compensaiton with the large and powerful insurance companies. The shadow health minister even had his say too.
Justin Madders, the MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, , who worked as an employment solicitor before moving into politics, offered his support as the personal injury sector prepared for the latest government shake-up. He had this to say:
“Nobody wants to see job losses, so it is vital that the government fully understands the implications of its proposed changes,’ he said. ‘A number of studies are currently being conducted to get a better picture. The changes to small claims limits are a real concern. This shouldn’t be about politics, but ensuring that vulnerable people have access to the best advice and support is vital.”
This is in response to government proposals to scrap general damages for perosnal injury claims and accident claims such as the much maligned whiplash sector. It also stated setting the small claims limit to £5,000 for all personal injuries claims.
Whilst our website is dedicated to more serious personal injury types, we support compensation for any person in the UK who has been hurt due to an accident that wasn’t their fault. Along with our accident claims partners we believe that all residents and workers in the country should be allowed to claim compensation and are concerned that any changes to the law could impact upon that.
