New claims process facing problems
Another quick update on an issue I have being covering in previous blogs. This is the problem over drafting the rules to cover the new claims process for low value RTAs. The recent edition of Litigation Funding reports: “We understand that talks between all the stakeholders to define the process are not going well (they were meant to have been concluded by Christmas), and that the Civil Justice Council has been drafted in to run a mediation over the next three months. The planned implementation date of 1 October 2009 is starting to look more than a little optimistic, and the thought arises afresh as to whether it is really worth the bother”.
