Amy Rollings secures two findings of fundamental dishonesty in four weeks

In R, a holiday illness claim, Amy successfully argued that the Claimant was fundamentally dishonest.  The finding principally related to the Claimant dishonestly stating that she had not been on excursions, when the Judge found she had been on at least four.  In addition there were numerous Facebook entries suggesting exaggeration of symptoms. 

In P, after having numerous inconsistencies exposed during cross examination, the Claimant was found to have brought a false holiday illness claim.  Most instructive was that P had not made any contemporaneous complaint of illness despite filling out questionnaires and completing online reviews whilst allegedly suffering symptoms.

In both cases Amy secured enforceable costs orders for the Defendant.

Baby Zachary was born at the Midwifery Led Unit, Walsall on 15 October 2016, having suffered intrapartum hypoxia due to lack of oxygen during labour. He was in a poor condition and not breathing. After initial failed attempts at resuscitation, he was transferred to Manor Hospital Walsall, where some 30 minutes after birth, he was successfully resuscitated.
