Fully Comp 14: First reactions to the MoJ whiplash portal protocol and practice direction

For the fourteenth episode of Post’s video series Fully Comp we gathered together a group of experts to discuss the highly anticipated publication of the rules, tarriffs, pre-action protocol and practice direction linked with the whiplash portal.

Hours after the Motor Insurers’ Bureau’s provided its first update on the portal since these critical rules were released, Post gathered together a panel to talk about: what was included - and just as importantly not included; what insurers, law firms and other interested parties need to do to be ready for the changes; what could to be done to raise consumer awareness of the changes; any concerns over timing; and initial thoughts on where the regime needs to be fine-tuned to make it a success.
