Everyone in the UK is potentially affected by the Government's outrageous proposals. Claims for medical accidents will also be affected by the proposed increase in the small claims limit. Please support the campaign against these changes.
"Ordinary people who have suffered minor soft tissue injury, including injuries sustained in non-motor accidents, need expert legal help to navigate the court system and understand medical evidence. People who have been injured rely on solicitors to help them secure compensation they are entitled to." Plans to up the small claims limit for personal injury to £5000 would prevent claimants from recovering legal costs, which means that many would not be able to obtain legal representation for claims forcing people to fight through the courts without legal help. Insurance companies can afford legal representation, so there would be no equality of arms if the person who has been harmed has to deal with a legal procedure alone.
