Andrew Gray Featured In Law Society Gazette Discussing Personal Injury Reforms

Andrew Gray, founder of Truth Legal, has recently been mentioned in the Law Society Gazette as part of a lengthy personal injury feature.

The feature article, called ‘Collision Course’, discussed the proposed ‘whiplash reforms’ which are set to make it even harder for claimants to secure justice for their injuries.  The article highlighted the fact that there are potentially 2 ways you could view the reforms; either it will help to stop fraudulent, exaggerated cases or it will simply serve to boost the insurance companies as genuine claimants shift the costs of their injuries on to the state.

Truth Legal’s Andrew Gray was quoted in the article giving an honest and heartfelt view of the reforms from a lawyer’s perspective. As a regular media commentator, Andrew is prepared to tell it how it is.

“Back in the 1990s some personal injury lawyers would bill £600,000 each doing road traffic accidents, churning them out and making insane sums of money. That had to change, but we’re now at a stage where it’s almost not profitable to run personal injury cases. It certainly won’t be profitable to do low-value claims come April 2020.”

Andrew also commented that many claims management companies will move into the space left behind the lawyers, mopping up the low value claims. He believes the sector has already been heavily ‘dumbed down’ meaning many cases are under-compensated. Andrew believes this effect will be ‘exacerbated under the new regime’.

The proposed reforms are due to be introduced in April 2020.
