Whiplash injury news

Pub landlady cleared of benefit fraud

A pub landlady from Gloucestershire who suffered chronic whiplash injuries in a 1994 car accident has been cleared of fraudulently claiming incapacity benefit.

The QC hearing the case said that having heard all the details relating to the whiplash injury sufferer's claim, "We are not sure that there was any specific dishonesty on those occasions [the periods for which she was claiming]."

Instead, the court heard that the whiplash injury sufferer had merely been working on an emergency basis after her bar manager absconded with around £20,000 of her savings.

The case came to court after the Department of Work and Pensions spied on the chronic whiplash injury sufferer for two months in an attempt to gather prosecuting evidence.
