Implementation of Government Proposals Could Mean Claims Settled Faster

It said if proposals made last year by the government were implemented, then claims could be settled much faster.

Average Motor Accident Claim Takes 730 Days To Settle

The ABI said that the average motor accident personal injury claim took 730 days to settle.

250,000 Car Crash Related Personal Injury Claims Last Year

There were 250,000 personal injury claims last year associated with car crashes, with 80% being non-contentious, so why does it take so long to settle them.

The ABI believes that they could be dealt with in a quarter of the current time.

Satisfaction

I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. First Personal Injury*/Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend First Personal Injury/Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim.

Calls for a new system

A year ago the government suggested that a new time scale should be introduced for such claims.

Under that proposal, lawyers would have five days after being contacted by a claimant to let insurers know that a claim might be made.

Insurers would have 15 days for a motor claim and 30 days for a workplace or public liability claim to decide if they were going to settle or not.

And if a settlement could not be agreed, then the case would go to a district judge for a decision.

Mr Hadrill said this would be very much to the benefit of claimants.

ABI Calls Supported By Employers Organisation And Citizens Advice
