This will support and enable both represented and unrepresented claimants to progress Road Traffic Accident related personal injury claims under the new small claims track limit of £5,000. The Government’s key design principle in approaching the development of the new IT service is that that the claimant and access to justice must be at the heart of the process and the new service must be as simple and efficient as possible for unrepresented claimants to make, progress and settle their claims online without the need to go to court. In addition, unrepresented claimants will also have access to a bespoke alternative dispute resolution scheme, which will enable them to gain, at no cost to themselves, an independent view on the liability decision made by the defendant insurer. The service will also provide claimants with guidance, so that claimants can understand and navigate the IT Service without unnecessary delay.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Claimants however, will not be precluded from having legal representation at any point of the process, but will be liable to pay for a lawyer.</p>
