Are claims generally on the increase or decrease?
The claims to the Injury Board since it set up are fairly constant in numbers. The improvement in car construction, the increased use of seat belts and less driving under the influence together with the more recent Covid 19 restrictions on movement have all led to a decrease in claims in the past year. It remains to be seen whether this will result in reduced premiums in the coming year.
