Discovery of fraudulent disability claim saves €2 million

The claimant was involved in a motor accident and, after some years, claimed that he was completely disabled and was permanently confined to a wheelchair requiring full time care. Investigations revealed that the claimant was in fact not in any way disabled and that there was no physical reason for any disorder he claimed to have. The claimant withdrew his claim on the morning of the High Court hearing, the insurance company successfully pursued an order for costs and the case was concluded with a saving of €2 million.
