DAS has published a wide-ranging white paper on the likely outcomes of the MOJ’s proposed whiplash reforms.  The paper examines the consequences of the government reforms, which have been designed to address the amount of compensation being paid by the insurance industry for soft tissue injuries and the knock-on effect this could have for people who sustain injuries.

DAS experts are available to provide their views on issues such as; will the reforms reduce access to justice for legitimate injury claims; will claims be settled for less than is entitled; will the self-employed lose out; what up-front charges will injured parties need to pay when pursuing claims through small claims court, and will they be prohibitive?
