Ageas UK CEO Andy Watson said: “Ageas welcomes the Government’s continued commitment to tackling compensation culture. Today's announcement in the Autumn Statement is a very substantial and positive move that should reduce needless costs in whiplash claims. That can only help customers and we have long called for this type of reform. We look forward to working with the government on the detail of the proposals to ensure that they have the positive impact on claims costs we all want to see.”
