We secured the dismiss of a fraudulent claim at Newtownards County Court on 14/09/2018. The Plaintiff was involved in a low-speed impact in July 2016 as a result of which he claimed he had been unable to work since due to back pain. We were able to introduce evidence of the very low speed of impact and evidence that the Plaintiff had actually hurt his back months before playing football. The Judge ruled he was not satisfied that the Plaintiff was credible (the Plaintiff could offer no explanation for why he told his medical expert, that he was “free from physical complaint prior to the subject accident” and then admitted under cross-examination that he had sustained a back injury playing football a few months before the accident and had ongoing back pain at the time of the motor accident. Not only did we secure a dismiss of the claim but our client was awarded costs as well.
