In the future, those suffering whiplash injuries following minor road traffic accidents will be offered rehabilitation, something AXA has advocated for many years.

AXA UK Group Chief Executive, Paul Evans, commented

"The Government is to be applauded for this tangible reform of the whiplash compensation culture. If implemented to its full potential, honest motorists will no longer bear the unacceptable cost of those who seek to profit from exaggerating minor accidents.  This is great news for motorists."
