Crash for cash fraud ring exposed

A “crash for cash” fraud ring that had been operating in Liverpool has been exposed by a leading UK insurer.

Insurer, Equity Claims Limited discovered that a fraud ring had conspired to contrive a string of accidents in the South Liverpool area for financial gain via personal injury claims.

On hearing evidence from the insurer, Liverpool County Court found that four out of the five claims which reached trial had been brought fraudulently. The claims were challenged at a nine day trial earlier this year and judgment was handed down recently.
