The Serious Injury Guide requires a commitment by all parties to obtain and disclose promptly all relevant documents, including police reports in road traffic accident cases. National Policing Guidance on disclosure of information to third parties in relation to civil claims following a road traffic collision is available to read below. This guidance mirrors policy provided to CPS lawyers in respect of the disclosing of information to third parties in road traffic collisions.

As outlined at paragraph 7 of the guide, in the event that either party feels that the opposing handler is not acting in accordance with the spirit of the guide, the first step must always be to exhaust attempts to resolve the point of concern by dialogue/meeting. If such dialogue fails to allay concerns, contact should be made with the nominated contact point at the firm/insurer/handling agent in order to try to deal with the issue.
If the escalation contact is unable to resolve the issue, or they would like to inform the user committee of any recurring issues, they should contact one of the representatives below:
Association of Personal Injury Lawyers – Alice Warren, firstname.lastname@example.org
Forum of Insurance Lawyers – Laurence Besemer, email@example.com
