I couldn't agree more and share their grave concern with the problems many of us have with 'cold calling' and unsolicited text messaging. I have for example been receiving calls and messages for months about an accident, which I know nothing about. APIL propose the following:
-- a ban on the passing on of injured peopleâ€™s private details without their explicit consent, on every occasion
-- an extension of the strict ban on cold calling which currently applies to solicitors. Insurers and claims management companies must be held to the same rigorous standards as solicitors.
-- tighter regulation of personal injury advertising to prevent misleading, exploitative and distasteful advertising
-- a strict duty on insurers to report suspicions of fraud to claimant lawyers as soon as they arise: sharing information in insurersâ€™ possession is the surest way to tackle fraud.
Common sense should prevail, but I fear it won't.
