Insurers have welcomed the Civil Liability Bill gaining Royal Assent.
The move follows the Bill, which aims to stop bogus or exaggerated whiplash claims, passing through the Lords on 20 November.
This now means that compensation will be capped, and settling claims without medical evidence will be banned.
The Bill also makes important changes to how the personal injury discount rate, otherwise known as the Ogden rate, should be set following the shock rate cuts from 2.5% to -0.75% in 2017.
