Proposed increase to small-claims limit in Personal Injury claims

Blaser Mills welcomed recent news that a decision on whether to raise the small-claims court limit for personal injury claims will not be made until the autumn.  Any increase will, in our opinion, serve to reduce access to justice.

An announcement was previously expected in the summer, but we now hope that the later date will allow for the Transport Select Committee’s inquiry into whiplash claims to have some influence.

Blaser Mills appreciates the work of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers who will meet with individual members of the justice committee to discuss the association’s concerns about the Government’s proposals.
