Preventing PI changes, some words of encouragement from Neil Sugarman, President of APIL
In this weeks PI Focus Neil Sugarman, President of APIL, has applauded the efforts of those fighting to prevent these changes from happening. The changes being referred to are of course the increase in the small claims limit and the proposed reforms to remove the right to compensation for whiplash injuries. In a positive article he states that there has been a great response by members approaching their local MP’s to try to raise the issues and make them aware that Access to Justice is slipping away.
We have previously made an article on this matter and it is very pleasing to see that the President of APIL is positive concerning the good work done to raise the arguments. The government has come across as not caring about people who are disadvantaged from no fault of their own. This new article from Neil Sugarman reassures us that if we all fight it together then it is not too late to prevent the changes from happening. This is encouraging news in such a challenging time.
