Responding to “Legal profession welcomes Truss – but warns of work to do”
(The Law Society Gazette, 14 July 2016, by John Hyde)
The Motor Accident Solicitors Society said it was heartened by May’s pledge to work on behalf of working people and hoped this will mean a rethink of personal injury reforms.
Its statement said: ‘We look forward to working constructively with Liz Truss on some pragmatic solutions to the problems around fraudulent compensation claims.
‘We also welcome the new prime minister’s comments yesterday about fighting injustices for ordinary working-class people and hope that this sentiment will be echoed in considering the impact of proposals on the basic right to compensation for injured working people.’
