Michael Smith Secures Another Finding of Fundamental Dishonesty for Large Insurer at Birmingham County Court

by Kenworthy's Chambers 31/07/2018

Michael Smith represented a large insurer at Birmingham County Court on 26th July 2018 and secured another finding of fundamental dishonesty. Suspicions were aroused when an undeclared accident was discovered, for which there was a claim made, that had occurred shortly before medico-legal examination for the index claim. During cross-examination, Michael extracted admissions from the Claimant of lying to two experts in two subsequent claims in order to enhance damages.
