Director of Spencers Solicitors, John Spencer, provided evidence to the Parliament’s Transport Committee on their probe into the rising cost of motor insurance. He disputed that car insurance premium rises were solely due to legal costs and further highlighted the referral fee profiteering undertaken by various ancillary parties that provide no value to the accident victim.
John Spencer also called for proper regulation around the practice of insurers intercepting accident victims before they can gain independent legal advice.
