Comment from Vidisha Joshi, Managing Partner, Hodge Jones & Allen

Posted on: 20th March 2018

Reacting to today’s announcement from the Justice Secretary on the Civil Liability Bill, Vidisha Joshi, Managing Partner of Hodge Jones & Allen, says: “The government should really waited for the findings of the Justice Select Committee before proceeding with these ill-advised reforms. There remains no clear evidence to the extent of whiplash fraud which would warrant introducing a system designed to make it impractical or uneconomic for any genuine claimant to make a claim.

“The reforms will place significant impediments in the way of claimants seeking justice for smaller personal injury claims and would appear to be caught by the Supreme Court’s statement in last July’s Unison case that, without unimpeded access to justice, the democratic process is in danger of becoming ‘a meaningless charade.’ This is another sad day for British justice.”
