MASS was formed in 1991 to represent the victims of road traffic accidents (RTA) and promote the efficient and effective provision of legal advice – twenty five years on we are proud to still be doing the same!
Over the last 25 years, the way personal injury (PI) claims are handled and those involved has changed beyond all recognition. The profession has had to endure and adapt to a multitude of rule and process changes including fixed recoverable costs, RTA Portal, LASPO and MedCo to name just a few. All have demanded RTA practitioners to adapt their businesses and processes and improve efficiencies but with reduced fees and it is a credit to the profession that they have achieved this.
MASS has also evolved and developed to meet those changes and has grown in size and stature to be regarded as the leading authority in all matters involving RTA claims.
We are extremely proud to be at the heart of Government and industry discussions and negotiations, surrounding RTA PI claims providing a voice for accident victims and a presence for claimant solicitors whom otherwise would not have the opportunity for their opinions and experiences to be heard.
Without doubt, had it not been for the expertise, dedication and shear hard work of the various MASS Chairman, Committees and our membership, access to justice for the accident victim would be significantly reduced. MASS and our members should be immensely proud of the achievements that we have made.
However, our work is far from done. Our profession now has possibly its biggest fight ahead in order to continue to protect the rights of the accident victim to ensure they retain their right to justice and a fair and just compensation system and you can be assured that MASS will be at the forefront of this battle.
