ABSTRACT
This article reports that the RAC has hit out at recent proposals to raise the "small claims' limit for personal injury work to 5.000 pounds. RAC Legal Services head Jonathan Gulliford said the plans, outlined recently by the Lord Chancellor, Lord Falconer, will seriously affect many people claiming compensation for Injuries. Raising the small claims limit is throwing the baby out with the bathwater he said. Currently, a "small Claim" is 1,000 pound or below. In 50 per cent of cases handled by the RAC's 24-firm legal panel, value is added to a claim by rejecting the first offer of compensation.
