Fake whiplash claims push up insurance bills by £118 a year with premiums up 80 per cent in four years | Mail Online

Bogus whiplash claims cost every motorist an extra £118 on their annual car insurance bill, it has been revealed. Premiums have risen by 80 per cent since October 2008 due to the rise in people making costly – and often false – whiplash claims, according to a report by insurance company Aviva. The average legal fee for a whiplash claim is £2,500, almost half of which is due to intermediaries, including claims management companies and personal injury lawyers, seeking a cut for themselves. The researchers said that if insurers handled claims directly rather than through these third parties, an estimated £1.5billion could be stripped from UK motor insurance premiums.
