John Spencer to chair the APIL Whiplash conference 15th May 2012

Spencers Solicitors' John Spencer will be chairing the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) conference "Whiplash: The Evidence" on 15th May 2012 at The Grange City Hotel, London.

With all the media hype about whiplash, APIL has put together a one day conference to investigate the real truth and causes of whiplash injuries, with the overarching objective of dispelling the myths and focusing on the evidence.

While various commentators have stated that "people in the UK have weaker necks than our Continental cousins", the reality of the situation is somewhat different. Indeed, in terms of actual numbers of whiplash claims, the UK is a distant second to Italy; Italy has 558,000 compared to the UK's 375,000. In terms of the average cost per claim we are far below the European leader Switzerland where a whiplash claim will cost approximately €35,000 (compared to the UK's €2,878). And don't believe the suggestion that whiplash doesn't exist in Germany - they have about 200,000 claims!

Full details on the conference can be found in the Whiplash: The Evidence programme on the APIL website.
