MOJ Portal analysis for EL and PL claims

17 Nov 2016

BLM has compiled a report using data extracted from the Claims Portal company website in relation to the management information for EL and PL claims during the period August to October 2016.

The statistics from the Portal company website released on 7 November 2016 reveal the following key points:

  • A slight decrease in the number of CNFs sent/received when comparing the average for August 2016 to October 2016 with the monthly average for 2015.
  • A decrease in the number of stage 1 exits when comparing the monthly average for August to October 2016 with the monthly average for 2015 and 2014.
  • A 17.6 % decrease in the number of stage 3 packs when comparing the average for August 2016 to October 2016 with the monthly average for 2015. However, there has been a 37.84% increase in the number of stage 3 packs when comparing the monthly average to date for 2016 with the monthly average for 2015.
  • A 18.07% decrease in the number of unresolved claims when comparing the monthly average for 2016 with the monthly average for 2015.
  • Based upon the exits from August to October 2016, in excess of 50% exit at Stage 1 in comparison with 1.6% exiting the portal at Stage 2. It appears that these statistics will remain stable as they are similar to the statistics for 2014 and 2015. This means that just over 50% of all portal claims will exit the portal at some stage of the process.
  • The average monthly statistics reveal that the amount of General Damages offered is gradually increasing each year with an increase of 5.17% when comparing the monthly average for 2015 with the monthly average to date for 2016. Specifically for the period August to October 2016 there has been a 15.89% increase in the amount of General Damages offered for EL claims when comparing to the monthly average for 2015. Also there has been an increase in the amount General Damages offered for PL claims by 9.82% when comparing the monthly average for 2015 with the monthly average for August to October 2016. It will be interesting to see whether these figures remain consistent and the impact that the JSB 14th edition, which is due next year, will have on the amount of General Damages offered.
  • If the present position is maintained, the annualised projection of EL and PL claims submitted in 2016 totals 116,712.
  • The total number of CNFs submitted via the portal from 31/7/2013 to 31/10/2016 for EL claims is 151,495. Whilst the total number of CNFs submitted via the portal from 31/7/2013 to 31/10/2016 for PL claims is 214,390.
