The Claimant brought a claim against his former employer in respect of an alleged accident at work, seeking to recover damages in the region of £75,000.
Following a two-day Multi-Track trial, DJ Haworth dismissed the claim on liability, making a finding that the Claimant had been fundamentally dishonest in the presentation of his claim.
The Judge went a stage further and found that the Claimant’s solicitors should Show Cause why they should not pay Wasted Costs on account of their over-pleading of the claim and their failure to properly investigate the defence that had been advanced.
