RTA: government committed to raising portal limit to £25,000

The government has made clear its intention to push ahead with extending the RTA process and also increasing the personal injury small claims limit next April despite publication of the Fenn report yesterday.

The report indicated that it was too early to extend the process to higher-value road traffic cases and to other types of PI claim, while previously the company behind the electronic RTA portal said it could not be done in time, but the Ministry of Justice told our new sister site, Litigation Futures, that there will be no changes to its plans.

The importance of being expert

Steve Rowley 3

I recently sat on a panel debate in Manchester, with the debate entitled – ATE insurers and sub-£250k claims. Whilst the title of the debate was probably written ahead of the government’s consultation paper to introducing fixed recoverable costs in lower-value clinical negligence claims, where £25,000 rather than £250,000 is being recommended, it nevertheless raised an interesting point on how after-the-event insurers can make premiums proportionate to damages, especially for cases worth less than £25,000.
