'Compensation culture' review calls for curbs on personal injury law advertising
Personal injury lawyers and claims management agencies could see their operations limited following a review of health and safety laws focusing on the UK’s compensation culture. Lord Young’s report - Common Sense, Common Safety - was published last week and calls for restrictions on the volume and type of 'no-win, no fee' advertising for personal injury claims, as well as restrictions on the operations of both the agencies referring the cases to solicitors and the lawyers themselves. Referral fees themselves would not be banned by Young.
