No-win no-fee crackdown called for

Stephen Bett, the IPCC for Norfolk, has warned that ministers must clamp down on a compensation culture fuelled by no-win, no-fee lawyers, after a woman officer who tried to sue a crime victim dropped her claim. “This mindless no-win, no-fee compensation culture is being driven by greedy lawyers. It’s rife. Everybody seems to believe they can make a fast buck. This case of a PC who suffered an injury answering a 999 call was driven by lawyers. It was ridiculous and it should give Westminster the ammunition it needs to legislate against them. They should be told that if they fail, as they did in this case, they’ll be given a hefty bill for costs. It would act as a deterrent.”
