Car crash claim news
Motor insurance offences punished


A young driver who backed out of a driveway into the path of an oncoming van has received a 12 month community order for trying to ask the van driver if he could pretend that the incident happened two hours later so that he could then retrospectively arrange motor insurance to indemnify him from a car crash claim.

However, as the van driver would play no part in the car crash claim scam, the 20-year-old was brought before Doncaster Crown Court, where he admitted careless driving and driving without insurance.

Fortunately for the youth, neither driver suffered personal injury in the incident, while the court also heard that it would not be in the public interest to imprison him.

The defending solicitor said of the car crash claim criminal, "It was an isolated, very stupid act, by a young man who has not been before the courts, at a time when he was suffering from depression because he had lost his job and there were question marks about his accommodation."

The defendant was also ordered to pay an accident compensation order of £500.
