star this property answer text <p>The Government welcomes the commitment of 84% of UK motor insurance providers to pass on to consumers savings arising from Government measures in the Civil Liability Bill and the wider whiplash reform programme.</p><p> </p><p>Motor insurance is intensely competitive on price and we expect that insurance companies will have little choice but to pass on savings, or risk being priced out of the market. Insurers have pointed to how they passed on to customers the benefits of previous Government action to cut the cost of civil litigation, without the need for regulation. The Government will continue to closely monitor the industry’s reaction to these reforms and will regularly engage with them on how they are meeting their commitment. If the industry as a whole sought to avoid passing on savings the Financial Conduct Authority and the Competition and Markets Authority would investigate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is the Government’s opinion that minor low value Road Traffic Accident (RTA) related personal injury claims are suitable to be heard in the small claims track. Claims under £5,000 are relatively minor and straightforward and are not so complex as to routinely require a lawyer. Handling these claims in the small claims track will reduce the cost of these claims for all motorists. In addition, in 2013, the then Government consulted on increasing the limit for RTA related claims to £5,000 and committed to keeping the issue under consideration for implementation when appropriate. The Government believes that it is right to return to this proportionate and appropriate measure now and that £5,000 is the right level to set for RTA related claims.</p><p> </p><p>The limit for all other types of claims will though be increased in line with inflation to £2,000, allowing the more complex employers/public liability cases to remain in the fast track. The Retail Price Index is the appropriate measure to increase the small claims track limit because it is the index used to update damage awards in the Judicial College Guidelines.</p>
