Al Jafari v Sarwat
Birmingham County Court
16 October 2015
A late notified, farmed personal injury claim brought under the Qualified One-Way Costs Shifting regime was found to be fundamentally dishonest and was dismissed after the Judge concluded that he could not accept anything that the Claimant had said. Mohamed Al Jafari brought the claim “in a deliberate attempt to deceive”. Although his wife brought a claim 10 days post accident, Al Jafari didn’t intimate his claim until 12 months later.
DWF late notified claims specialist and Director, Jewels Chamberlain, who acted for the Defendant upon the instructions of Eldon Insurance Services, looks at the facts in the case and what led the Judge to make a finding of fundamental dishonesty, despite the medical evidence supporting the claim.
