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?

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
