Backdated injury creates a bigger problem

A claim to the value of €80,000 was lodged following a single vehicle accident. The claimant was a passenger in a friend’s car. When this case was investigated it was found that although the claimant did suffer injuries, some of the injuries he was claiming for were in fact sustained in a separate subsequent accident seven months after the incident occurred. The claimant was exposed and the judge dismissed the claim in its entirety.
