Qamar Anwar Comments on the News That Clinical Negligence Costs Will Be Fixed by April

Commenting on the announcement that clinical negligence costs are to be fixed by April, Qamar Anwar, managing director of First4Lawyers, says:

‘While the government says there is no evidence to support the concerns we share that many smaller, specialist firms will exit the market as a result of these reforms, its decision to increase the costs they will receive is a tacit acknowledgement that this is a real risk.

‘Claimant lawyers are not opposed to change; they simply want to be paid fairly and to see vulnerable clients get the justice and compensation they deserve. The government’s priorities seem to be more on how much it can save.
