Responding to the Parliamentary Transport Select Committee on "Driving Premiums Down" Andy Watson, CEO of Ageas UK said:
"The Transport Select Committee has today made a useful contribution to a debate which impacts millions of motorists up and down the country. In particular, we urge the Government to do more to crack down on fraudulent and exaggerated claims by reducing the amount of time permitted to make a claim and for stronger contemporary medical evidence to be presented. Allowing three years for people to claim for whiplash on flimsy evidence is an open invitation for unscrupulous companies to encourage fraudulent claims. The honest motorist ends up paying for this through higher premiums and it cannot be allowed to continue."
