RTA personal injury reforms to be implemented from April 2019


Ministers have confirmed to the Motor Accident Solicitors Society that the planned reforms will be implemented from April 2019. The reforms, contained in the Civil Liability Bill, will introduce a tariff system for damages in relation to soft tissue injuries and will increase the small claims limit for RTA related claims from £1,000.00 to £5,000.00.


The controversial reforms previously formed part of the Prisons and Courts Bill, although this failed to progress through Parliament as a result of the 2017 General Election.
