A statement from the Motor Accident Solicitors Society (MASS) today said that the government plans to introduce whiplash reforms in April 2019.

In response, Qamar Anwar, managing director of First4Lawyers, says:

“It is disappointing, although not surprising, to hear that the government plans to press ahead with the Civil Liability Bill next year. However, we are undeterred and will continue to fight these unjust proposals.

“It is crucial that the claimant PI market comes together to fight the false premise on which these proposals are based. The new justice secretary must not roll over and take the insurance industry’s propaganda at face value.

"We hope he will instigate a meaningful and honest debate about what is right and wrong with how personal injury victims are treated, the way in which insurers operate and the importance of the whole sector coming together to stamp out fraud. It is long overdue.”
