Jackson Review will benefit claimants in personal injury cases, according to RBS Insurance

RBS Insurance has welcomed the recommendations on how costs should be decided on civil compensation cases, put forward in Lord Justice Jackson's civil litigation review.

Steve Treloar, managing director of motor at RBS Insurance said: “We believe reducing the layers of bureaucracy and litigation costs in personal injury cases will assist in ensuring those claimants with genuine needs are compensated appropriately, whilst deterring those wishing to put forward fraudulent compensation claims.

"As well as benefiting the claimant, proposals to lower legal costs associated with civil compensation cases will also help keep insurance premiums down."
