Small Injury Claims Information

In the Budget Statement for November 2015 the Government announced fundamental changes to

  • Whiplash injury claims
  • Soft tissue injuries worth less than £5000
From just £-*
  • Possible in such cases to recover court fees

    We believe that clients with small injuries deserve proper representation so we will act in such cases for a set fee of £1250 plus vat and 30% of the winnings paid at case end provided you win.

  • Proper representation

    It is still possible in such cases to recover court fees and a sum towards expert medical reports.

The intention was announced that the limit of the Court’s Small Claims Track for injury claims worth less than £5000 would be increased thus providing no mechanism for recovering costs  in cases worth or likely to be worth £5000 or less.

The detail and implementation date for the changes is not yet available but it seems reasonably clear that the intention of the Government is to deprive claimants with modest injuries from access to professional representation and access to justice because if there is no ability to recover costs the fees of the solicitor  fall upon the  injured claimant.
