Personal injury claims may be down (as reflected in a report issued this week by the Faculty and Union and Council of Actuaries), but sadly they are not yet out. Sensing that more needs to be done to bring about the fuss-free world all forward thinking businesses dream of, HMG has unveiled bold new plans to make justice less affordable.

Increases of up to 600% in the cash deposits required of anyone planning to bring a claim to court, should help deter those who might otherwise be tempted to go grubbing after cash handouts every time they sustain some trivial wound or injury. Initiatives like this are exactly what we need to cut the drag of rag-tag damaged-goods human detritus on the forward thrust of Business Team GB.

Predictably, whinging legal bods are already bleating on about how unfair it is that people can’t afford to go to law. What’s eating those parasites is that there’ll be less work for them! Former Chelski midfielder and alternative rock legend John Spencer, currently with lobby group P.I.L., has been banging on about how “some seriously-injured people will be expected to pay £10,000 up front to bring their cases to court, and many simply won’t be able to afford it.”

Well, sorry John, but Justice costs and right here is where your malingering layabout something-for-nothing clients are going to have to start paying.



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
