Motor Fraud work has recently undergone significant changes due to the introduction of fixed costs, QOCS, and the concept of “fundamental dishonesty” in CPR r44.16 and the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015, s57. The Government’s proposed whiplash reforms promise further uncertainty for defendant insurers and their solicitors and may, ironically, provide even greater incentives for the bringing of fraudulent and/or exaggerated claims. The need for such cases to be investigated and contested rigorously but at proportionate cost has never been greater.
Chambers has been at the forefront of fighting fraud for the last 15 years. Members are instructed in cases involving the full range of fraud issues including staged accidents, fraud rings, phantom passengers, late notification, low velocity impacts and exaggerated injuries. They frequently obtain findings of fundamental dishonesty and are also experienced in dealing with committal proceedings.
