A model and semi-professional footballer has been jailed after she fraudulently made a claim for whiplash and took advantage of the personal injury system.

The case highlights the importance of providing evidence to any judicial process and taking the advice of solicitors. 

False Claim

The female took out a claim against Esure following a road traffic accident in 2012, but she failed to seek medical advice or obtain an appointment with a medical professional to check her injuries. As a result the defendant was able to have her claim dismissed. 

High Court investigators were then encouraged to investigate the claim and found that the driver had been in a numerous of fitness challenges and had sky dived since her incident showing that her claim was fraudulent. She has since been sentenced for two months in prison.

Making a Claim

Although the whiplash claim was falsified, the issue highlights the importance of having evidence for a claim. Sadly, as seen in the case highlighted above, whiplash is one of the most common injuries that is fraudulently claimed for, however, if you are genuinely injured as a result of a road traffic accident, sporting injury or any other accident you are entitled to make a claim. If you have been involved in any accident having evidence and seeking advice from medical professionals is of vital importance.
