The Ministry of Justice has decided to exclude vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians from proposed changes to the law that will limit the ability to recover compensation following injury in a road traffic accident.
Campaigners, including British Cycling, argued that it would become almost impossible for cyclists to get legal representation without sacrificing a significant proportion of the compensation that they would be entitled to.
The government has introduced the Civil Liability Act in an attempt to restrict “whiplash” claims. However, the proposal to increase the small claims limit for personal injury claims from £1,000 to £5,000 also threatened access to justice for injured road users such as cyclists and pedestrians.
