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

In G v EUI Limited three Claimants advanced claims for personal injury and loss following a road traffic accident in 2017.

The First Claimant claimed that the vehicle that he had been driving, and in which the other Claimants were passengers, was subject to a 'forceful' impact when the Defendant's Insured collided with the rear of their vehicle.  Following cross examination this account was rejected.

It was found as a fact that the accident was minor and the Claimants, including the Second Claimant who was pregnant at the material time, were not injured to any extent. The Claimants were found to be fundamentally dishonest and the Defendant was awarded enforceable costs on the indemnity basis.
