BLM's head of motor, Nick Rogers has spoken to Law360 about new statistics from the MOJ Portal for RTA claims which show that the number of personal injury claims made in the UK following car crashes has fallen by 10 per cent since April 2016.
Speaking on the number of factors that could be a contributor to the fall, Nick said: "Vehicles are getting safer, particularly with something like [automated emergency braking] which is helping people to avoid crashes. The decline could also reflect restructuring and mergers within law firms, which have left dwindling numbers of lawyers handling personal injury files. If there is a reshaping of claimant [personal injury] model, it may involve taking slightly fewer claims."
