Personal Injuries Proceedings Act 2002

The Personal Injuries Proceedings Act 2002 responded to suggestions that some lawyers were 'ambulance chasing' by prohibiting touting at the scene of accidents and imposing restrictions on the advertising of personal injury services - restrictions both on what advertisements can say and where and how they can be published. The Legal Services Commission became responsible for enforcing these sections of the Act by amendments that came into effect on 29 May 2006.

The Commissioner has since published regulatory guides and other information to assist practitioners.  Please refer to our regulatory guides for further information.
