Whiplash Claims Revved Up!!!

The number of motorists making claims for whiplash injuries has revved up again, according to Aviva, the UK’s largest claims insurer. Aviva has warned of a record breaking year as predictions suggest that injury claims are expected to top 840,000, crashing last year’s total by 9%.

In other European countries such as France, whiplash claims account for just 3%, whilst in Germany there is a slight rise to 47%, but that’s still far less than figures closer to home,  making the UK ‘the whiplash capital of Europe’.

It’s believed that the problem lies in our “compensation culture” with too many claims still being either fraudulent, staged or extremely exaggerated. 

The Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFOA) has long expressed their concern about ‘inconsistencies’ showing that while the number of damage claims was falling, those for personal injury were soaring and costing honest and legitimate motorists millions of pounds a year in higher insurance premiums because of  widespread fraud.

Previously the problem had been improving as a result of new rules brought in by the Government last year.  They promised to deny all compensation payments to anyone found to have exaggerated or invented a claim.

Their idea was to consider the evidence from accredited doctors in an attempt to bring fraudulent compensation claims numbers down. This had helped, but still more needs to be done in creating a culture where people can no longer profit from exaggerated cases.
