Proposed increase to Small Claims Limit for Injuries

The Conservatives plan to increase the small claims limit for road traffic accidents to £5,000 and for all other accidents to £2,000.  These changes could come in by October 2018.

This means that if the injuries you sustain in a road traffic accident are worth £5,000 or less (or in another type of accident £2,000 or less) the costs you can recover if you win are very small and in effect you will have to fund your own legal expenses or represent yourself.  These costs will have to come out of your compensation.

If you have had an accident in the last 3 years and you are not sure whether your injuries will be below the proposed small claims limit YOU SHOULD TAKE ACTION NOW.

If you are in any doubt about what your injury might be worth contact Nick or Vicky on 01925 759510.
