Ministry of Justice officials have confirmed that plans to increase the small claims limit for motoring claims will be implemented in April 2019. 

Responding to the news, Law Society president Joe Egan said:

‘These changes will mean people injured through no fault of their own will struggle to get justice.

‘The Law Society does not accept that these limits are reasonable and we continue to oppose these reforms.’
