Whiplash fraud register could be accessed by solicitors

Insurers have indicated that they may be willing to agree to solicitors’ demands to share information on known fraudsters.

In a bid to tackle whiplash claims, The Association of British insurers (ABI) is preparing a new register which will collate all members’ fraud records for the first time in one place. Solicitors would like access to these records.

Swain & Co.’s specialist personal injury solicitors say this move is a positive step, although the issues of how the data can be shared with reference to data protection rules need to be considered. Access to the register means that of insurers have information that makes them think that a claim is fraudulent, and then solicitors will know.

There has been much publicity about reducing whiplash claims, and backlash over the government seeming to give into insurers demands. But in whiplash claims there are still victims that need access to justice, and if exposing the potential fraudulent cases protects the true victims then we are in favour of the register access.

If you have suffered an injury that was not your fault, either in a road traffic accident, at work or from a trip or fall, you could be entitled to compensation. Call Swain & Co.’s specialist personal injury lawyers who offer FREE initial consultations and can act on a no win no fee basis. Call us for FREE on 0800 0351 999.
