The whiplash reforms which were implemented on 31 May 2021 means that insurance companies will no longer have to pay legal fees for the majority of whiplash claims and those who suffer whiplash would have to pay for their own legal fees or use the Ministry of Justice's online self-service portal system called the

The micase platform is designed to remove the burden of dealing with the claim yourself, so you can get on with more important things, like focussing on your recovery.
The amount of compensation for your pain and suffering will depend upon the length of time your symptoms lasted. The tariffs for compensation you can receive for whiplash injuries are:
These amounts have a slight uplift if you've also suffered minor psychological injuries in addition to the whiplash injuries. These tariffs are:
The courts are able to make the decision to increase the amount you receive for your pain and suffering but only in cases of exceptional circumstances, such as if the whiplash injuries are considered to be ‘exceptionally severe’.
In addition to the compensation for your pain and suffering, you can also claim any out of pocket expenses, for example, if you’ve lost wages as a result of being unable to work, have had medical expenses such as prescriptions and over the counter medication or treatment expenses such as physiotherapy. Where the overall claim, for both pain and suffering and any out of pocket expenses, totals more than £10,000, the case will be dealt with under the current rules and will not be affected by the whiplash reforms.
The last thing you need is to pay for legal representation and end up out of pocket, even if you win your case. So, Slater and Gordon are providing legal representation through a No Win No Fee agreement. What this means is, if you don’t win your case, you don’t pay any fees and if you win your case, you’ll be charged a 25% fee of your compensation. Therefore, there’s no financial risk to you and you’ll not end up out of pocket.
There is however an exception to this rule. If it’s found that you've acted dishonestly or maliciously in making the claim or if you're found in breach of your agreement with us, you might liable to pay costs. We always ensure that you have the full facts straight from the very beginning.
Not everyone with a whiplash claim valued at less than £5,000 will be affected by the whiplash reforms. The following are exempt:
1. If your accident happened in Scotland
2. If you’re a vulnerable road users - Their definition of a vulnerable road user is someone who at the time of the accident was:
3. Children and other protected parties such as those who lack the mental capacity to deal with their own affairs
4. If the driver at fault for the accident or the injured person dies
5. If you’re bankrupt at the time of the accident
6. If the vehicle of the driver at fault is registered outside of the UK
If you fall into one of the categories above, you can still make a claim for whiplash injuries. The only difference is the claims process you follow will be the same as other personal injury claims and not the process set by the whiplash reforms.
Simply set up your account and register your claim, and we’ll begin the process straightaway.
