We are of course pleased that MoJ are not pressing ahead immediately with its proposed package of damaging reforms that would have had a significant detrimental effect on the rights of the injured victims of motor accidents. However we must not allow this news to interfere with the work that is already under way to address some significant problems in our sector. Solicitors and insurers need to work together with government to address the scourge of fraud, prosecuting identified fraudsters and cracking down on cold calling. We also need to improve claims management regulation, implement data sharing between Portal and IFB, and continue the work of we are doing through Medco to improve the quality of medical reporting.
