The Civil Justice Council (CJC) working group charged with reviewing concerns over the conduct of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) claims met on 18 November 2015. The purpose of the group is to make recommendations to the Government on how a fixed costs regime might work and how the procedure of handling NIHL claims can be improved. The group is expected to make an initial report to the CJC this month and a final report in April 2016.
