LV=, the UK’s most trusted and recommended insurer, today (Thursday 17 November 2016) welcomes the Ministry of Justice’s consultation on reforms to compensation for minor whiplash injuries and is calling on Government to urgently implement the proposals.
Following Chancellor George Osborne’s promise in his 2015 Autumn Statement that Government would bring forward reforms to address “the compensation culture around minor motor accident injuries”, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has today published a consultation outlining the measures it will introduce to tackle the issue.
Martin Milliner, LV= General Insurance Claims Director, said: “LV= promised to pass on all savings from the 2015 Autumn Statement compensation crackdown to customers and that promise still stands. We welcome today’s consultation and look forward to working with Government on implementing the reforms – honest motorists and businesses should not have to keep paying the price for unnecessary whiplash claims. The UK is known as the “whiplash capital of the world” so it’s vital that Government implements these proposals without delay to ensure consumers can start getting a fairer deal as soon as possible.”
