Philip de Berry secures finding of fundamental dishonesty and an enforceable costs order pursuant to CPR 44.16

The Claimant sought damages for whiplash following a RTA in which the Defendant's van rolled back into the Claimant's stationary vehicle. Breach of duty was admitted. The Claimant had seen her GP on 3 occasions for treatment and undergone a course of physiotherapy. Her evidence was rejected as dishonest by reference to the slight nature of the incline and credibility issues arising from cross examination.
