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.

Looking for new answers in PI

It might be a New Year with a new justice secretary, but there’s work to do if 2018 isn’t going to result in the same old story when it comes to legal reform. In recent times the personal injury sector has been hit by a battery of changes, and all-too often our response has been unclear or even apologetic. Yet the cumulative impact on our firms and especially on those we seek to assist has been obvious. It is time we learned from our experiences and tried a different approach.
