Claiming compensation in Chesterfield could be about to get a little bit more difficult. That’s because changes are being muted which would see stricter regulation on personal injury law claims. It’s another instance of legislation which is intended to stop frivolous claims but in truth go on to impact those most in need of making a claim.
Changes to the law
Ever since legal aid was removed from personal injury claims back in the 90s there has been a progressive trend towards more regulation which is designed to make it more difficult for people to claim.
These include a three year rule brought in to limit the amount of time that can pass before people make a claim and stricter guidelines on payment such as changes to the way lawyers are allowed to claim their success fees. Indeed the legal system is changing across the board which is why some lawyers were protesting in the streets against further cut backs in legal aid, and one MP who fought off claims of indecency found himself nearly bankrupted by his legal bills – despite winning the case.
The idea behind these moves is in part to save the government money, but also to cut back on what are seen as frivolous claims being made by too many people. As always the impact is felt by people on a budget which is why services such as Accident Advice Helpline are more important now than ever before.
