I was listening to something about this on the radio the other day then I read about it in the car news this morning; apparently scammers earn an average of £16,000 per "accident", according to the body set up to combat this type of fraud. The story on the radio was about one particular guy who had repeatedly committed this type of fraud. To be honest I was surprised how prevalent it is, thankfully I have never experienced anything like this myself but was wondering if anybody else had? It makes me really quite angry, as the rest of us have to pay for this with increasing insurance prices!

The details of the report are in this thread.
I've heard of one person who this type of thing happened to, when the 4 big lads got out of the car that the fraudster reversed into he decided to apologise profusely and pay for the damage to the bumper out of his pocket. He picked the wrong person at the wrong time.

Brilliant! Good to hear. I think this sort of thing is totally appalling!

I remember when personally injury started to hit Britain back in 1999/2000, thats when all this started and can only see it getting worse unless someone takes some action against this personally injury Law
