Successful defence at trial of suspected ‘slam-on’ collision

3rd June 2013

James Henry (Instructed by Karen Mann of Greenwoods and Martin Stuart at LV=) represented the Defendant at a two-day trial in Central London County Court.  The Defence alleged that three Claimants had deliberately induced a collision with the Defendant in order to pursue fraudulent claims against his insurer.  His Honour Judge Freeland QC rejected the Claimants’ evidence, dismissed their claims and entered judgment for the Defendant.  The Judge did not make a positive finding of fraud, but held that that the Claimants had failed to prove their cases by a wide margin.
