Ben Morris secures a finding of fundamental dishonesty and enforceable costs order pursuant to CPR 44.16.

In S & C v S the Claimants advanced claims for personal injury and loss following a road traffic accident in 2017. The Defendant admitted breach of duty but contended that the impact was so minor that injury could not have been suffered ('LVI').

Following Ben's cross examination the Court found as a fact that the Claimants had not been injured, despite contemporaneous attendance for medical treatment and damage to their vehicle being assessed in excess of £1,100.  Both claims were dismissed and both Claimants were found to be fundamentally dishonest.  An enforceable costs order was secured in favour of the Defendant for in excess of £6,500.
