9. Personal Injury Claims under £25,000  

Out of the estimated 850,000 personal injuries claims each year in the UK, about 650,000 cases arise from road traffic accidnets (RTAs), 80,000 are employer’s liability cases (EL), and 75,000 are public liability cases (PL). About 90 per cent of these are cases where the damages are estimated at below £25,000. This chapter discusses cases covered by the RTA and EL/PL protocols; the provisions of the RTA protocol; the process under the RTA protocol: claim notification, medical evidence and negotiation, and Part 8 claim to determine quantum; child settlement applications; fixed costs under the RTA and EL/PL protocols; and cases where parties can stop following the RTA or EL/PL protocols.
