Iqbal v (1) Harris (2) Nelson Insurance Company

November 2018

Practice Areas


Emma Northey, instructed by Ian Williams of Keoghs for the Second Defendant. Finding of fundamental dishonesty against the Claimant, whose evidence about the accident circumstances was rejected by the judge and whose damages claim “frankly collapsed” under cross-examination (by both counsel for the First Defendant and counsel for the Second Defendant).

The Claimant had given inaccurate information to his medical expert and went on to give inaccurate evidence in court. The judge found that these considerable difficulties with his case were not the result of misunderstandings or errors of memory.
