There is a very interesting article on the UK BBC website which asks whether or not the UK has a problem with whiplash injury and accident claims.
The BBC highlight an increase in people making whiplash compensation claims, and asks whether or not the claims culture is damaging the reputation of the accident claims and personal injury industry.
Personally our editors think that there is a problem, and it’s something that needs to be addressed, should the murky part of the industry be cleaned up.
It goes without saying that there are a huge amount of accident claims that are submitted in the UK which do appear to be fraudulent… and this is not helping the trusted and regulated businesses that do a good job in the UK.
