Civil Liability Act & The Impact on Compensation Claims
Published 4 October 2019. By Marie Irvine
The implementation of the Civil Liability Act 2018 in early next year may lead to reduced compensation claims for those who have sustained injury or damage as a result of a road traffic collision. It sets to provide a tariff scheme which will denote set compensatory limits for whiplash injuries.
The government has sought to dramatically overhaul the way in which those who have suffered a whiplash injury, or a low value injury, is compensated. Here at MKB Law we feel that this could prevent access to justice for those who have endured a civil wrong.
This legislation may lead to insurance premiums for motorists being reduced, but it leaves little redress for those who have suffered at the hands of negligence on our roads.
Although this legislation has not been set to extend in full to Northern Ireland, our governmental stalemate means it is important for the public to keep up to date and well informed of our evolving legal system and how it affects them.
MKB Law’s Claims and Litigation department are highly responsive to changes in the legal industry. We will guide you throughout your personal injury case in order to generate the best outcome for you.
