INVITATION TO MEETING WITH CAPITAL ECONOMICS
Liverpool Law Society has arranged for its members to meet with Capital Economics as part of our continuing review of the government’s proposals for whiplash/RTA reform. The meeting will take place on Thursday, 15th December 2016 at 12.00pm at the offices of Liverpool Law Society in Helix, Edmund Street, Liverpool, L3 9NY.
Capital Economics will present their on-going research into road traffic accidents, fraud statistics, motor insurance premiums and the economic impact of the government proposals. The meeting will provide new insight and a forum for balanced discussions and debate.
By working together we can influence change.
Please confirm your attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org
Before then, the Society asks if those of you who work in personal injury can complete Capital Economics’ survey – deadline Friday 2nd December 2016.
The recent MOJ consultation has as its basic aim the reduction of individual motor insurance premiums by £40 per year. Its impact assessments contain data based calculations that support that assertion but which are potentially flawed. Provisional estimates of the impact to removal of compensation for soft tissue injury and increase in the small claim limits for all injury is the loss of 60,000 jobs in the legal sector as well as the denial of justice to millions of people.
The only way in which we can respond to this is with data that we know is fact-based and reliable. Our own data.
Capital Economics have been working to assess the reasons behind the consultation and defeat the arguments made since last Autumn but need our help to complete their analysis. They have asked that as many local firms as possible complete their survey by Friday 2nd December 2016. Even if you are unable to respond to all the questions a partial response will make a difference. Please take some time to help or make your colleagues who work in PI aware of the survey.
