The Government has revealed that the final report due in December 2015 will include discussion on limitation periods for whiplash claims and changes to the small claims limit. Shadow Justice Minister, Andy Slaughter has already voiced his support of a modest increase in the limit.
The second stakeholder roundtable event took place on 19 October 2015. The four broad topics identified in the interim report were separated into six overlapping categories: data-sharing; industry (best practice); legal framework; consumer behaviour; regulatory bodies and issues considered outside the remit of the Taskforce. Recommendations deemed out of scope include removing general damages for whiplash injuries.
