Suffering an accident and injury in Devon
It cannot be denied that compensation claims are mushrooming. The most reliable figures come from the Department for Work and Pensions’ compensation recovery unit, which is notified by claims companies of every claim they receive so that it can recover benefits paid and the cost of NHS hospital treatment as a result of personal injury cases.
Reducing legal costs
There are various efforts in the pipeline to reduce the legal costs associated with these claims, such as the Jackson reforms in the legal aid, sentencing and punishment of offenders bill, the ban on referral fees in personal injury cases and funnelling more cases through a more efficient electronic portal which is currently used for low-value motor claims where the claimant has admitted fault.
Though there is no doubt that car accidents can cause neck injuries and many medical studies point to the existence of whiplash, not everyone agrees about the extent of the problem.
It is the opinion of some, that firms such as Accident Advice Helpline actually help and even improve the overall standard of safety in many industries, including motor vehicles.
The fact that they make it easier for people to claim is also a step in the right direction, the more people that exercise their rights then the more likely it is that companies will recognise the need to up their game and improve standards.
