The release today of the monthly Portal Company claims data for new RTA and casualty claims enables us once again to look at pointers towards future trends on both claims volumes and the cost of claims.
Monthly RTA claims volumes
In April 64,500 new claims were lodged to the portal. We had previously suggested that the post-reform average was starting to settle in the 66,000-69,000 range. This figure is clearly lower. Does it suggest that there is some evidence here of decreasing volumes?
