DASLawAssist 200The after the event division of the DAS UK group announces that they have entered into a new arrangement with specialist lender for the legal profession, Novitas, to provide solicitors with ATE insurance and funding for disbursements in clinical negligence cases.

The funding is via consumer credit agreement loans which are protected by a DAS LawAssist ATE insurance policy. Clients have no upfront costs and only repay the loan amount and simple interest charged out of any damages they receive.

Richard Whale, ATE sales manager at DAS LawAssist: “Since the introduction of LASPO in April 2013 the effects of the court fees increase and delays in case settlement have all impacted on cash-flow to the extent firms can now be carrying hundreds of thousands, if not millions of pounds of disbursements in clinical negligence cases on behalf of claimants.

The partnership with QLP and Novitas came about after our own panel of solicitors came to us asking for a funding solution. The relationship provides solicitors with a proven funding solution and a first class ATE product.”

‘No, minister – CMCs are not the answer to your problem’

Last month, MPs on the justice select committee asked minister Lord Keen what would happen when the government went ahead with its plan to raise the small claims limit for personal injury claims (from £1,000 to £5,000 for road traffic related claims and to £2,000 for everything else). As it is a jurisdiction in which lawyers do not generally operate – because legal costs are not recoverable – who might help claimants navigate what can still be a complex process? His answer, surprisingly, was claims management companies.
