Government to Extend Fixed Costs to Holiday Sickness Claims

In a highly significant move, the MOJ has announced that the CPRC will be asked to bring forward proposals for fixed recoverable costs in holiday sickness claims. The move is described as being in direct response to the rise in the number of ‘bogus’ gastric illness claims. It remains to be seen whether the proposed changes will involve a bespoke system for gastric illness claims or whether they will apply to all cases involving low-value personal injuries suffered abroad.

The announcement is available here.
