Following the whiplash reforms, there's no need to go it alone as a Litigant in Person. Micase provides expert legal advice and representation at your fingertips, without any financial risk to you.

Once you’ve registered your claim on the micase platform, you’ll be able to track the progress of your claim 24/7.
Why has the process to claim for whiplash injuries changed?
As a result, the Government introduced the Civil Liability Act 2018 and the Whiplash Injury Regulations, more commonly known as the whiplash reforms, in an effort to reduce the amount whiplash claims were costing the insurance industry. The move is a positive one, as the savings the insurance companies make must be passed on to their customers, and as a result, the Government expects that motorists will save approximately £35 per year on their motor insurance premiums.
The whiplash reforms were implemented on 31 May 2021, after delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and have changed the process for making a whiplash claim.
What has the whiplash reforms changed?
Before the whiplash reforms were implemented on 31 May 2021, if your whiplash claim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (loss of enjoyment/quality of life) was worth over £1,000, as well as receiving compensation, your reasonable legal fees would be paid by the insurer of driver at fault for the accident. The whiplash reforms changed the £1,000 threshold to £5,000 which impacts the vast majority of people who suffer whiplash in a road traffic accident, as the amount of compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity for a whiplash claim usually falls below £5,000.
As insurance companies will no longer have to pay legal fees for the majority of whiplash claims, and the amount of compensation you can receive for a whiplash injury has been reduced, this will save them a significant amount of money.
How will the whiplash reforms affect those who wish to claim compensation for whiplash?
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) have introduced an online self-service portal system called the . If you choose this method to make a claim for whiplash injuries, you’ll have to bring the claim yourself as a ‘’, which basically means you’ll be acting on behalf of yourself without legal advice or representation.
You're still entitled to seek legal representation but should be careful that you read the terms and conditions as if you’re charged hourly rates for representation, there’s a risk that their fees will cost more than the compensation you receive, so you may end up out of pocket.
The micase RTA platform is the solution to your claim for whiplash injuries, as it ensures everyone has access to expert legal advice and representation without the risk of being left out of pocket.
