Litigant in Person

A Litigant in Person (sometime referred to as a “LiP”) is someone who represents themselves in a civil legal action, without the advice, guidance and representation of a lawyer. From 31 May 2021, a person can represent themselves as a LiP to get compensation following a road traffic accident in England or Wales if they have suffered a whiplash injury. This is done via a self-serve online portal system called the Official Injury Claim portal (or OIC). Below are links to some useful information about the OIC claim process for making a claim:
