Fraudulent Claim Still Gets Payment

A man who faked the seriousness of his injuries sustained from an accident at work on a forklift has still been rewarded with £90,000 of a £900,000 claim even after the insurance company obtained footage of him leaving a medical examination on crutches, only to be seen walking fine and unaided when he got out at the other end.

Judges decided that the genuine part of his claim could still be kept which was £90,000 but the insurance company, Zurich, are arguing that the whole claim should be thrown out since the majority of it was fraudulent.

You can read more about the case and see the video footage by following the below link.
