Hopkins Solicitors is supporting the #backoff campaign recently launched by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). The campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers of tailgating in an effort to reduce accidents and whiplash injuries.
APIL have produced a You Tube video ‘A Lesson in Social Graces’ to illustrate how easy it is to prevent these types of accidents.
The campaign reflects one of the association’s key objectives of working to prevent needless injury and sits alongside their other campaign activities related to this issue: lobbying to prevent an increase in the small claims court limit in England and Wales; providing written and oral evidence about whiplash claims to the House of Commons Transport Select Committee; and producing a booklet dispelling popular myths on the issue – The Whiplash Report 2012.
