The Case

Contempt of court Committal. The nine defendants' claims for losses following alleged road traffic accidents, including for personal injury, were challenged by the claimant insurance company, LVI, to which their claims were made. The Queen's Bench Division held that the defendants had knowingly made false statements in their claim forms, particulars of claims, and in the schedules of loss and witness statements in County Court proceedings such that it had been established that each of them had been guilty of contempt of court.
