Whiplash Reforms

Act now to avoid increased claim costs

We’ve all felt frustration when a road traffic accident (RTA) claim is settled and an apparently uninjured driver receives substantial compensation for whiplash. To make matters worse, the involvement of claims management companies can increase costs substantially.

New protocols are being introduced on 31st May which should reduce some of these concerns. Often called the “Whiplash Reforms” they’ll change the way low-value RTA personal injury claims are managed.

The reforms affect all drivers and any companies with a vehicle fleet, irrespective of size. If you’re not ready for the changes, you’ll probably see an increase in your costs.

Our specialist panel will explore:

  • What are the reforms and why are they needed?
  • The impact on claims and settlement
  • How to ensure you don’t incur extra costs

The panel are experienced in motor and personal injury claims and in motor accident management. They’ll share their knowledge to help you understand what the new rules mean to you and how you can avoid extra costs.

Our Panel:

  • Tina Winterburn, Claims Director, North Division, Gallagher
  • Kerris Dale, Partner & Head of the Motor Practice Group at BLM Law
  • Hosted by Miles Hebden, Account Director, Gallagher
