Whiplash report fees slashed in UK to cut false claims

Cost of medical reports will be drastically cut in the UK in a bid to limit false whiplash insurance claims

The price of medical assessments for people that claim to have suffered whiplash in car accidents will be cut in England and Wales in a bid to reduce false whiplash claims.

An initial medical report can currently cost up to £700. This will be cut to just £180, justice minister Chris Grayling announced, as the Government continues to crack down on ‘compensation culture’.

The Government is hoping that by drastically reducing the cost of the reports it will stop experts that produce them from having an incentive to encourage claimants to get treatment that they don’t need. The savings made by insurance companies can then be passed on to motorists.
