Whiplash assessment report fees cut to tackle fake claims
Fees medical experts charge for assessing people who claim they have suffered whiplash are to be cut.
Charges of up to £700 for an initial medical report will be reduced to £180.
The government hopes introducing a fixed rate will deter experts who produce reports which encourage claimants to get unnecessary treatment.
