If you pick up a whiplash injury in Chicksands, the small village in Bedfordshire, you shouldn’t put off the decision about whether or not to claim for compensation for too long. It’s nothing to do with the fact that you happened to get injured in Chicksands; it’s not to do with the location; it’s to do with the general climate surrounding the controversy of fraudulent whiplash claims being made.
Facts about whiplash claims
The high number of whiplash injury claims that were being registered, and the astronomical sum of compensation being paid out, (over £2 billion per annum in total), was responsible for driving motor insurance policy premiums up by an average of £90 per policy. A slight reduction in the number of fraudulent claims being passed through the system, together with fierce competition in the insurance industry, has been responsible for driving insurance premiums down by an average of £100 per policy.
The first major step under consideration
In order to make further investigations into the cost of motor insurance, further significant reductions are needed to be made in the amount of bogus claims getting through the system and, and being awarded compensation. The first major step along this road is an enquiry, convened by the Ministry of Justice, to look into the creation of a specialist panel that will be convened with the express aim of reviewing seemingly exaggerated whiplash injury claims.
