Compensation Culture Club

Interesting piece at the Gazette, the conclusion of which it is difficult to disagree with. I do however think that certain Housing work may well be conducted under CFAs – other SWL, less likely.

One does however wonder about the Governments somewhat Jekyll and Hyde attitude to the “compensation culture” and the Legal Aid Ministers own well publicised involvement in this area. It was the combined effect of the 2000 changes, not just PI going out of scope, which lead to the subsequent claims management boom. I doubt that the same will happen this time but following the PMs attacks on “this sort of thing” last week one might expect a bit more “joined-up thinking”.
