"I consider the creation of a network of claims representatives to be a benefit of the 2000 Motor Insurance Directive. Their efforts will speed up the settlement of motoring claims. As regards penalties for delays in addressing claims, I agree with the rapporteur’s view. On the basis of subsidiarity, national regulatory bodies are better placed to guarantee the highest possible level of consumer protection in their national markets. According to the available data, more than 90% of all claims are settled out of court so, in this respect, there is no need for the Commission’s initiative to introduce compulsory legal expenses insurance across the European Union. It would raise the costs of compulsory motor insurance and burden the courts with additional disputes, which could be settled out of court. The voluntary nature of legal expenses insurance needs to be retained and, in the new Member States, citizens must be provided with more information on insurance products."@en1
