Commenting on the MoJ's consultation into the cost of whiplash claims, Matt Oliver, spokesperson for Car Insurance, said:

"We welcome any steps that make it harder for disingenuous claims to be made, while ensuring that honest claimants are supported and taken seriously. The measures outlined by the MoJ in its consultation should provide a more effective way of identifying have-a-go compensation chasers and reduce the volume and cost of these sorts of claims. 
"Today's announcement is long overdue but if, in future, insurers are able to only pay out for genuine claims, it will make a significant difference to all of our car insurance premiums."
