PI Futures: Making personal injury pay

September 2015: Making personal injury pay
Wherever you sit in the claimant market, it is a time of uncertainty and change. In that respect, nothing has changed since our first PI Futures back in 2013. But the election of a Conservative government seems to mean no let-up on reform, be it clinical negligence gees, deafness cases, MedCo or the new ‘fundamental dishonesty’ rule. Most expect the small claims limit to rear its head again sooner or later. Delegates at this year’s PI Futures not only explored new structures and operators, but how to keep personal injury a profitable line of work, while ensuring access to justice for injured people.
