    Insurer esure blames rising costs on tough British winter

    Snow storms from Siberia brought rare snow and sub-zero temperatures to much of Britain in late February and early March trapping several hundred motorists on roads in Scotland, closing thousands of schools and grounding planes. The insurer said the disruption caused by 'The Beast from the East' and 'Storm Emma' over the period resulted in 8 million pounds ($10.88 million) of claims costs in its home insurance business, which is 6 million pounds ahead of company's expectations. In March, Britain announced plans to introduce new laws to cut the number of whiplash claims from car accidents and change the calculation of personal injury payments, a move which would lower costs for insurers and motor premiums for drivers.

    Britain to put brake on whiplash injury claims from car crashes

    Whiplash is a form of neck injury caused by a sudden jolt that snaps the head backwards but insurers argue that many claims in such cases are fraudulent. Britain's Ministry of Justice said it would set fixed compensation amounts for whiplash claims and require medical evidence before claims are settled. It is also changing the interest rate used to calculate how much in compensation should be paid by insurers for personal injuries, cutting the size of payments.
