ABI's high-level group on personal injury will discuss the review at the next meeting

The ABI will respond next month to recent proposed reforms to personal injury claims, a spokesman said.

The ABI is currently looking at all aspects of the 500-plus-page Jackson Review of civil litigation costs, released last week, which called for an end to referral fees and conditional fee arrangements.

The spokesman said there were numerous implications for insurers to be explored, and the review would be discussed at the next meeting of the ABI’s high-level group on personal injury, to be held in mid-February.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Department for Justice, which commissioned the review, admitted there was no timetable for a detailed government response to its many recommendations.
