The government plans to increase the small claims limit for road accidents
"The proposed increase to the small claims limit for those injured on the roads shows that this Tory government is for the money, not for you."
Stephen Cavalier, chief executive of campaigning law firm Thompsons Solicitors said: “The government’s plan to increase the small claims limit to £5k for those injured on the roads is an attack on motorists, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists and all road users, as part of an attempt by the government to deny access to justice.
"This government does not want ordinary people to have access to lawyers or the right to bring a claim. They want injured people to be left alone and forced to take on insurance companies and their lawyers without any advice or representation.
"The proposed increase to the small claims limit for those injured on the roads shows that this Tory government is for the money, not for you.”
