The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has conceded to MPs that the insurance industry saved ‘hundreds of millions of pounds’ from reforms to personal injury in 2013 and that whiplash claims have come down in the last year.

President of the Law Society of England and Wales, Robert Bourns, has welcomed comments made by ABI director James Dalton to the Commons Justice Select Committee during a session on personal injury reform, including an acknowledgment that a five-fold increase in the small claims limit to £5,000 should, for now, only be implemented for road traffic accident claims.
