Through representation and education our work within the industry is key in supporting the victims of road traffic accidents and our members’ who work on their behalf.
One of the many benefits of being a member of MASS is for individual law firms to have a voice and be represented in discussions with political and governing decision makers
With over 2 decades of experience, MASS is now regarded as the leading authority for all matters pertaining to RTA PI claims.
Due to our pragmatic and professional approach we are often invited to meetings and discussions with the Ministry of Justice and other relevant authorities including the Transport Select Committee, Civil Justice Committee and Solicitors Regulation Authority. In addition MASS regularly responds to the numerous consultation papers that are published. Already in 2014 we have responded to the Competition Commission on Private Motor Insurance; the MoJ on Court Fees; CJC on the Impact of the Jackson Reforms and by the end of May will be responding to the MoJ’s most recent consultation on Whiplash reforms and fixed costs for medical examinations.
For many years we have been working with the MoJ on the numerous reforms that have been implemented within the PI market. MASS played a fundamental role in the negotiations on the Jackson reforms and were invited to meet with Lord Justice Jackson to provide a detailed picture of the practical aspect of the RTA market and the issues faced by claimant solicitors.
These are just a few examples of the representative role that MASS undertakes and an indication of how our members are given the subsequent opportunity to have their concerns raised at the highest level.
