Ban on referral fees on Personal Injury cases
From 1st April 2013 there is a ban on the payment of referral fees in personal injury cases. This means that Claim Management companies should now come up with new ways of referring their customers to the solicitors and receiving referral fees. It will be interesting to see how this matter develops.
On our part we hope that clients will be able to make genuine enquires from real lawyers and appoint the right person to handle their personal injury cases rather than being treated as “lead” sold by one company to the other.
