File photo dated 26/10/09 of traffic on the M1 motorway. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Monday July 1, 2013. Motor insurance claims for whiplash appear to be on the rise, with Britain becoming more litigious than the US, according to new figures. There was a 5% increase in the proportion of accidents involving third-party injury (TPI) claims in England and Wales last year, statistics from financial body the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) showed . "A total of 90% of the TPI claims made in 2012 were what we consider 'small claims' for less than ?20,000," said David Brown, one of the authors of the IFoA report. He went on: "Coupled with the average claim figure of ?9,512, this suggests that the majority of claims continue to be for whiplash-like injuries." The report also said that a number of claims made last year were for accidents in 2011 and 2010,  suggesting that a high volume of back-dated claims have been filed. This is known as "claims farming". See PA story TRANSPORT Whiplash. Photo cre
