Posted: in by Michelle Barron.
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has postponed its controversial plans to extend the Road Traffic Accident portal scheme to personal injury claims worth up to £25,000, including employer and public liability claims.
The 1 April target date has been postponed with no indication given for the new timetable. An MoJ spokesperson said: “Earlier this year the government announced proposals to extend the road traffic accident scheme for personal injury claims to £25,000. “Following a legal challenge the Justice Secretary is now considering afresh the timing for implementation of the extended scheme.”
