Whiplash reforms to be debated in parliament ahead of implementation

Commenting on the upcoming parliamentary debates on the draft regulations for the whiplash reforms, Qamar Anwar, managing director, First4Lawyers says:

“We await with interest the outcome of next week’s parliamentary debates on whiplash reform. Updates so far have left many of us in the industry wringing our hands at what we can only describe as a lack of compassion and common sense to truly address the issues.

“In February we saw a piecemeal approach to issuing the rules and the Pre-Action Protocol and Practice Direction, and earlier this month the staggering news that the Ministry of Justice doesn’t see fit to inform the public via a widespread consumer information campaign.

“We can only hope now that peers and MPs alike will see the derisory tariffs that have been proposed for what they truly are, an insult to the injured and vulnerable. Once again the winners in this situation will be the insurers who save money at the expense of the pain and suffering of those injured through no fault of their own.”
