VULNERABLE ROAD USERS ARE VICTIMS IN GOVERNMENT’S WAR ON COMPENSATION CULTURE, WARN EXPERTS

January 9, 2017

Experts warn that the Government’s latest crackdown on fraudulent motor claims must make exceptions for vulnerable road users, such as motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians, or risk denying fair access to justice.

 

In its response to the Ministry of Justice’s consultation on reforming the ‘whiplash’ claims process, Fletchers Solicitors, which deals with around 30% of all motorcycle accidents in England and Wales, warns that the planned blanket approach for all road users ignores the reality for vulnerable groups. This includes the 18,000-plus motorcyclists who represent 10% of all casualties on the UK’s roads each year, despite only making up 1% of all road users.
