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.
