Many people involved in a car accident make false injury claims following a collision in London. If you try to do this or if you deliberately put yourself in a position where an accident will occur so you can try and make a claim you may find yourself being prosecuted for making a fraudulent claim.
You are only entitled to make a personal injury claim if you genuinely sustained injuries in an accident and you can prove that these injuries are real. Following a car accident it is always advisable to seek medical attention from a qualified medical professional to ensure that you have not done any severe or permanent damage. This will also help your personal injury claim because we will have medical evidence of your injuries from a trusted health professional. False injury claims cost millions every year and this impacts negatively on the costs of everything for genuine sufferers like car insurance prices.
If you are trying to fake an injury to make a quick bit of cash the chances are you will get caught out eventually. Insurance companies do not like to make a loss and will only pay out for genuine injuries. Insurance companies that suspect a false claim is being made will go as far as investigating a claimant secretly in order to prove they are faking the injury. Many people have been caught making false injury claims because they have claimed they are barely able to walk because of the accident and then a photograph taken of them has shown them playing football or out dancing. It is not worth the hassle of making a false injury claim.
If you have been involved in a car accident you are entitled to legal advice about your injuries; if you try to claim for a false injury the claims regulator may find out and you could risk being prosecuted in London. To avoid being prosecuted for fraud you should never attempt to make a claim for compensation for an injury you have not sustained or for an accident you caused.
