The Association of Consumer Support Organisations (ACSO) made a freedom of information request to the Government’s Compensation Recovery Unit (CRU) which have shown that there has been a 47% drop of personal injury claims across the board in 2020. The total number of claims has dropped from 843,000 to around 445,000.
Car accident claims fell by 46% to 356,000, while employer liability claims were down by 60% in 2020 mainly due to the effect of the pandemic. This is likely because many people are working remotely or have been furloughed meaning there are less people in a workplace environment and also less people on the road.
It seems that the insurance industry has already achieved the fall in claims intended by the Civil Liability Act, which is not due to be implemented until May, but has yet to pass on any significant savings to the insured. It is hoped that the Government will now consider the proposed reforms following the drop in claims.
It is clear that there will be an impact from COVID-19 and insurers and solicitors alike will need to be mindful of the changing landscape.
