Reduce legal claim values by 95% or more.  At a stroke this will destroy the 'No Win, No Fee' legal aid culture – Lawyers will not offer the service if there is no value in it if they win.  If for example a claim for a sprained ankle due to a pavement trip were to be succesful, and the claimant win £5 instead of £500, the claims would very quickly stop.

Why is this idea important?

The claim culture has generated a whole support industry in order for business and Government to avoid claims – all of which costs both business and the taxpayer huge sums of money.  It may be impossible for our Government to change the culture itself, but they could limit the financial rewards that have created the culture in the first place.  Huge restrictions in financial payouts for legal claims would quickly destroy the claim culture.
