Personal injury fraudster sentenced to 9 months imprisonment

Michael Lemmy was instructed by DAC Beachcroft Claims Ltd to represent Aviva Insurance Ltd on their application to commit the Respondent for contempt of court.  The Respondent who had deliberately caused a road traffic collision by braking suddenly in front of another vehicle in order to bring a fraudulent personal injury claim was sentenced to nine months' imprisonment for making false statements about the cause of the collision. Mr Justice Spencer was satisfied that false claims undermined the administration of justice in a number of serious ways and damaged the whole system of justice which depended upon transparency and honesty. This was a case of serious dishonesty striking at the heart of the justice system.
