The latest Datamonitor report, UK Personal Injury Litigation 2003 shows that personal injury claims in the year ending March 2003 increased by only 2.6%, mainly driven by disease claims, with accident claims up just 0.2%. Public liability claims rose by 8.7%. The report's author Vicki Summerhayes said there was no evidence of a compensation culture in the UK and that the problem for insurers was not the number of claims but their cost, with a 2002 bill of £4bn.
