Concerns are mounting about the Chancellors announcement that the small claims limit will increase to £5000 for injury claims.  Coupled with the likelihood of fixed costs schemes for Clinical negligence up to £125,000 in value suggests the Government doesn't realize the complexity of injury la, or the issues that require thorough investigation and presentation to a court. 

Ultimately, the courts will end up doing the jobs of lawyers with representation being limited to what the government will allow. Surely this will clog up the system and deny deserving and justified claimants what the law previously saw fit to provide.
