Lidington confirms rise in small claims limit for personal injury cases

The small claims limit for RTA cases will rise to £5,000 – as they are not cases where people should usually need a lawyer – and the limit for other personal injury cases to £2,000, the justice secretary, David Lidington, confirmed today. But he could not say when. He also said the government would make an announcement in the “very near future” on its review of LASPO.
