The government has been called to tighten up requirements for motor insurance by the parliamentary transport committee. Louise Ellman MP, committee chair, says that whiplash injuries can be debilitating for genuine claimants but a greater burden of proof should be required.
She argues that the government should consider requiring claimants to provide proof of having been seen by a doctor or attended A&E shortly after the accident. There should be a presumption of not accepting claims where adequate proof has not been provided.
Ellman said that she was concerned that current proposed changes from the government would put genuine claimants off and that genuine claimants whose condition cannot be picked up on a scan should not be demonised.
