Preston Solicitor Welcomes Tough Line From Justice Ministry in Rooting Out Rogue Accident Claim Firms

Ten times more accident claims handling specialists were forced to close for breaching the rules regulating their trade in 2010/11 than in the previous year, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has announced.

Licences were withdrawn from 349 firms in 12 months, compared to 35 the year before.

Some had been shut down for serious transgressions, such as fraud, and using misleading marketing and aggressive sales techniques, according to Kevin Rousell, from the Ministry's claims management regulation unit.

And the tough line has been welcomed by Preston-based personal injury solicitor Craig Porter, of PHC Law.

He said: "It is disappointing to learn that there are so many companies who are in breach of the regulations on our business which are intended to safeguard the interests of our clients.

"We deal with many personal injury victims on a daily bases, and for some of these the consequences are very severe.

"The overriding objective of any reputable, genuine firm is to attend to the needs of the person who has sustained an injury as a result of someone else's negligence.

"We therefore believe that action needs to be taken against companies which breach the rules and regulations of the MoJ."

PHC Law receives most of its work through referrals and recommendations, and as Craig Porter points out: "What distinguishes personal injury solicitors like PHC Law from claims management companies is our experience, expertise, and our client care - but, most importantly, we, along with many other firms, are regulated to the most stringent of standards.
