The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) has published a report detailing new evidence about whiplash claims – the document was recently presented to Parliament.
Philip Holt, SRB Partner and Personal Injury expert, says that; “The report’s findings show that ‘40 per cent of people who have suffered a whiplash injury never claimed compensation for their injuries, and that, far from being a trivial injury, whiplash can give rise to symptoms which last for more than a year for one in five people’. It is my opinion that negative media coverage, instigated by the Insurance Industry, has stopped many genuinely injured victims from achieving the justice, treatment and compensation they are rightly entitled to – a situation that needs to be rectified.”
