Government To Crackdown On Passing Of Info To Injury Lawyers

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

Injury lawyers are facing a severe crackdown by the Government. When someone is involved in an accident they are bombarded with no win no fee lawyers encouraging victims to make injury claims. They obtain details from the driver’s own insurance company who in turn receive commission fees for referring the injured driver who is making a claim against the other party’s insurance company. It has been suggested that this activity is in breach of the Data Protection Act.

Injured drivers and passengers are inundated with emails and phone calls from legal firms who have no permission to do so. The investigation, originally instigated by Jack Straw, will also look into the activities of the police and recovery companies who are known to advise breakdown companies and garages of accidents in return for fees.

Personal injury claims have doubled over the last 10 years to £14 billions in turn increasing insurance premiums. I agree that this is open to abuse but where a genuine injury has been sustained would some weaker individuals lose out as a result of these lawyers no longer encouraging them to claim for what it rightfully theirs? What do you think? By Graham Hill
