The Insurance Fraud Taskforce have now delivered their final report. Their findings will not come as a surprise, as the Taskforce released their initial recommendations in two tranches over September and October and because many of the issues raised in the report are longstanding ones that have received a lot of previous thought. The Taskforce finds common ground with the government where various proposed reforms are already in the pipeline, such as those in relation to small whiplash claims, the intended rise in the small claims track limit, proposed reform of noise induced hearing loss claims as well as late notified claims and the activities of CMCs.
