One new whiplash injury claim registered nearly every minute
The latest news with regard to whiplash injury compensation is that it’s going to get an awful lot tougher. It’s because of the new system that the Ministry of Justice is proposing putting in place to help stem the tide of fraudulent claims, which have reached almost epidemic proportions. Latest statistics based on the fact that last year over 477,000 claims were made, indicates that one new whiplash injury claim is being made nearly every minute.
Special whiplash injury medical committee to be put in place
A committee is being assembled to look into the creation of a special medical committee that will be convened to review all whiplash injury claims that appear to be potentially exaggerated. The committee will consist of members from the insurance industry, the medical fraternity, claimants’ lawyers, and lawyers acting on behalf of the insurance companies.
The enormous cost of whiplash injury compensation
The amount of compensation currently paid out to whiplash injury claim victims varies anywhere from £875 to £5000 depending on the severity of the injury, and the length of time the victim takes to recover. All in all it’s costing the insurance industry over £2 billion per year, not to mention the £8 million that the NHS spends on treatments.
U.K. drivers footing the bill
But what’s is happening now is that in order to fund the high cost that insurance companies are having to pay out, they’re hiking-up the cost of motor insurance by as much as £90 per policy.
