Alizada v Khan and Ageas Insurance Ltd
Bradford County Court (unreported)
For D2 insurer. Dismissal of a contrived road accident claim with a £50,000 costs order against the Claimant. A 3 year investigation had uncovered no direct connection between the Claimant and fraudulent behaviour but a great deal of other, circumstantial evidence of dishonesty. The Judge, directing himself that all rested upon the Claimant’s performance under cross examination, found the claimant to be complicit in the fraud and a dishonest witness, dismissed the claim and ordered indemnity costs against him, £50,000 of which he was to pay within 14 days.
