ABI appeals to MoJ to cut consumer legal costs


In its response to the Ministry of Justice consultation on civil litigation costs, the ABI highlighted that: UK consumers are paying the legal profession £2.7m through their motor insurance premiums.

It also pointed out that an estimated 10% of every motor premium goes to the lawyers equating to an extra £41 a year on the cost of every motor insurance policy and for every £1 paid in compensation to motor accident victims, an additional 87p is paid out in legal costs.
