The most common type of injury suffered in road traffic accidents is whiplash type injuries. Insurance companies often raise the allegation that an accident was of a low speed, therefore, the impact was not sufficient enough to cause injuries. The person claiming for injuries in such circumstances is alleged to be making up their symptoms to facilitate a claim for injury.
Whiplash is not always an objective injury. It is often subjective. The injured person could be wrongly accused of pursuing a fraudulent insurance claim for a variety of reasons, including the at fault person saying they were not injured; the vehicle damage being minimal or injured person not complaining or any injury or not visiting their GP or hospital.
If such an allegation has been made or inferred then you need to seek expert legal advice as the finding of fraud against you could have serious consequences.
