According to the Accident Claim Company of England, claims for car accident injuries and whiplash claims are increasing, even though actual car accidents are decreasing in number as British roads become safer. Apparently, the press there is beginning to believe that the litigation culture is worse there than in the US.
In the UK, becoming a lawyer requires far less schooling than in the US. In addition, the US was historically more progressive when it came to recognizing tort claims for personal injury.
Others are characterize the UK trend in car accident claims in other terms. They believe that even though auto accidents have become fewer, that as British citizens become more tech savvy and are surrounded by more information, they have become more knowledgeable about what is owed to them. Few are willing to argue that individuals who are injured should bear cost of their injury when they have been severely injured, even in an ordinary auto accident.
