General Ins - Latest News - comment on referral fee ban

 Pete Harrison, car insurance expert at comments on the announcement from the Government that they will ban referral fees in personal injury claims:

 "We fully support the move by the Government to ban personal injury claim referral fees. The UK insurance market has seen an unprecedented rise in premium prices over the past year, which in part, has been driven by the rise in referrals to personal injury lawyers by insurance companies. Very often, these referrals encourage people towards exaggerated compensation amounts for even the most minor of incidents, leading insurers to have to increase premiums for motorists so they are able to cover their costs. This ban is a victory for motorists who are facing rocketing premiums and we hope to see this change implemented quickly and efficiently so the benefits can be felt by motorists who are struggling to afford their car insurance. Until then, it is vital drivers shop around for the best deal, and make their hard earned cash go further."
