Low Value Personal Injury Claims In Road Traffic Accidents

EDM number 183 in 2009-10, proposed by David Taylor on 24/11/2009.

That this House is concerned at Ministry of Justice proposals to change court rules such that chartered physiotherapists will no longer be eligible to act as medico-legal expert witnesses in court cases where individuals have been involved in Low-Value Personal Injury Road Traffic Accidents (LVPI RTAs); notes that physiotherapy professionals are experts in this field, specialising in musculoskeletal assessment and treatment, dealing on a daily basis with injuries of the type produced by such LVPI RTAs; believes that physiotherapy professionals are well-qualified to produce a diagnosis and prognosis which will assist courts and parties to determine a quantum in these cases; supports the Physio First campaign of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy; and urges the Ministry of Justice to withdraw the proposed rule changes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
