It was recently reported in the Times that in order to crack down on fraudulent whiplash claims as from April a new panel of medical experts will be used that meet quality standards and will be randomly allocated to cases in place and only accredited medical experts will be on the panel.

This will undoubtedly have repercussions on the many medical agencies because any medical expert who has not obtained accreditation by April will not be able to provide a medical report.

The article went on to report backing for cross-industry initiative to share data between insurers and lawyers which is music to many lawyers ears. Lawyers have, for many years, been asking for access to the insurers data base especially when interviewing new clients as many do not have the luxury of a crystal ball and it is as much the responsibility of the insurers as it is for lawyers to seek out the fraudulent claims.
