The latest announcement leaves the victims of negligent injury at the mercy or insurers.  Previously the government had already brought in measures to take lowered values and straight forward injury claims away from the courts through a portal system.  

The issue remains that an injury valued less than £5000 may not involve a simple interpretation of law.  

What is the net result of this announcement?  Insurance share prices rise.  The Chancellor hopes the saving will be passed onto policyholders, but the previous savings provided to insurers did not lead to the same.  

The public need to be aware that although they do not need the justice system at the time these changes occur.  One day they might, through no fault of their own, need that system.  Of course, by then the remedy they need will no longer be available.
