Accident Advice Helpline is happy to lend their support to a new campaign set up to promote accident victims’ rights in the face of proposed changes to the no win, no fee* regulations in the UK.
The Access to Justice Action Group, according to their website, is:
‘An ad hoc body set up to coordinate action to protect access to justice for claimants, particularly, but not exclusively, in the field of personal injury. It is not a formal membership organisation and participation is open to organisations, representative bodies, law firms and businesses who support claimants. This includes claimants’ and victims’ support groups and charities, consumer organisations with a particular interest in legal services, solicitors’ firms and barristers, claims management companies, after the event insurers, trade unions and other membership organisations and representative bodies.
The immediate focus of AJAG’s work is the Ministry of Justice Green Paper, with particular reference to ensuring that as proposed reforms progress, the rights of claimants are properly taken into account and their access to justice maintained.’
