Earlier today, Express Solicitors Founder and Managing Partner James Maxey was a studio guest on BBC Radio 4s You & Yours programme. Summoned to Salfords Media City to appear on the long running lunchtime consumer affairs show, he was grilled by presenter Shari Vahl on the firms position on whiplash claims resulting from road traffic accidents.
James outlined Express Solicitor role in the Personal Injury industry, clarifying how the firm does not purchase cases from claims management companies but instead relies on advertising and personal recommendations from previous clients. He also debunked the myth that solicitors can pick and choose which medical experts they use, a common piece of misinformation often wrongly cited in the Personal Injury Law debate.
The issue has surfaced in the wake of comments last week by former justice secretary Jack Straw, dismissing whiplash as an entirely artificial injury. Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Hammed Malik appeared alongside James and disputed Jack Straws claims about the medically recognised condition. He helpfully pointed out that the condition we now refer to as whiplash was commonly diagnosed as early as the nineteenth century and that the vast majority of patients he saw had consistent, reliable testimonies.
