Extension of the Road Traffic Accident scheme to include employers' and public liability claims up to the value of £25,000
The Prime Minister announced on 5 January that the current RTA scheme would be extended. Following publication of the responses to the 'Solving disputes in the county courts' consultation paper, the Government plans to extend the existing RTA PI Protocol to cover claims up to the value of £25,000 and to include employers' and public liability accident claims.
We will also be reviewing the fixed recoverable costs in the RTA scheme.
We welcome your views and evidence as to what is an appropriate level of revised costs would be and how the current scheme needs to be amended to cover public and employer liability.
