James Paterson secures a finding of fundamental dishonesty for the Defendant in a claim in which the Court found there to be ‘multiple untruths’ told by the Claimant and it ‘could not accept anything the Claimant says about his assertion of injury’

James Paterson represented the Defendant Insurer in a claim involving a road traffic accident. The claim was found to be fundamentally dishonest. DJ Foster sitting in the County Court at Bradford found that the contact between the vehicles was not capable of causing injury and rejected the Claimant’s assertion he was injured. In dismissing the case and making the finding of fundamental dishonesty the Learned Judge commented that there were ‘multiple untruths’ in the claim and he 'could not accept anything the Claimant says about his assertion of injury’.
