  2. Clearwater Solicitors: Enduring The Turbulence In The Personal Injury Law Sector

    Leave a Comment

    Enduring the turbulence in the personal injury law sectorChanges to personal injury law have led to unexpected problems in the legal services sector. Regulations such as the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act, the Jackson Review of Civil Litigation Costs, the ban on referral fees and the changes to no win no fee claims law,  have made it difficult for some personal injury solicitors to bring on new cases, source new clients or afford to handle claimants.

    On January 29th, the Law Society Gazette reported that two more companies have sold off their clinical negligence compensation claims and personal injury claims caseloads. Pictons Solicitors and Gordons Solicitors offloaded their workbooks and opted out of personal injury law work.

    Recent UK law reviews into personal injury claims have seen a lot of other companies sell of their personal injury case files or practices. Since the Jackson reforms came into effect last April, Challinors, John Pickering & Partners, MPH Solicitors and Barnetts Solicitors have offloaded or sold their case files or practices so they could refocus their resources.

    The rapid sell-off of personal injury claims has not ended, and it is very likely that many more law firms will sell off their case files over 2014. This process could actually speed up, with the government’s continued clamp-down on compensation claims continuing through changes to whiplash injury claim processes and the creation of the Claims Portal, which is designed for low-value injury claims.

    Impacting the ability for personal injury solicitors to operate freely, find customers easily and pursue claims simply will not only lead to problems for the legal services sector, but will also cause issues for people who have been injured in accidents they were not to blame for.
