Representing insurers and two policyholders in two separate incidents, in different parts of the country, where it was being alleged that policyholders had caused injury and loss as a result of rear end shunts at roundabouts.
Court proceedings were issued in both cases and vigorously defended by both policyholders.
On each occasion both policyholders were sole users of their vehicles and both were at work on the date of the accident, one with his vehicle stored at his employer’s compound (with the battery removed!), one abroad.
With the assistance of very helpful witness statements from employers and work colleagues, as well as useful data from employment records, both claimants discontinued their claims, enabling the policyholders’ no claims bonuses to be reinstated, and enabling us to recover costs against the claimant’s insurers.
