Jamie Hill Establishes Claims Brought By 3 Claimants Are Fundamentally Dishonesty

Jamie Hill was instructed by the Defendant Insurer in the matter of S and others v S.  All 3 Claimants alleged that they had suffered various soft tissue injuries as a result of a collision in a car park.  The said collision was captured on CCTV.  The Defendant Insurer had the footage examined by an expert who opined that the collision was at no more than 3mph and that accordingly, it was extremely unlikely that personal injury could have been occasioned.

The Judge accepted the expert evidence and found that all 3 of the Claimant’s cases were riddled with inconsistency and contradiction.  Ultimately the Judge was satisfied that all 3 Claimants were making up their evidence as they were going along and that accordingly there could be no hesitation in a finding of fundamental dishonesty.

The Defendant was awarded its costs of defending the action, which exceeded £10,500.

Jamie continues to expand his insurance fraud practice. Please see here for his updated profile and CV.
