How has it changed?
Despite all the recent changes in Personal Injury Litigation and the recoverability of costs and premiums, there is still a need for Personal Injury ATE. The Jackson Reforms abolished recoverable premiums and brought in Qualified One Way Costs Shifting (QOCS). QOCS can be withdrawn for a variety of reasons therefore Claimants still need protection arising from Part 36 offers.
At the beginning of the post-Jackson era, many solicitors questioned the role of ATE insurance for Personal Injury claims. However, the market has shown that ATE is still relevant and needed. In most cases, there are still disbursements to be paid. Also, there is the possibility of having to pay an opponent’s adverse costs if matters take a turn for the worse.
With the protection that ATE Personal Injury insurance can offer, Claimants can avoid being tempted into accepting low Part 36 offers. This therefore provides them with confidence and security to progress their matters to Trial to seek the justice and compensation they deserve. We also have a range of premiums for all types of injury claims. They are ﬂat rated, competitive and affordable, given the limit of indemnity and cover we provide.
