Adam Samuel has secured the dismissal of a Claimant’s claim on grounds of fundamental dishonesty in the case of Faizan v Pakeeza Dairies Limited.
The Claimant suffered injury during the course of his employment with the Defendant in 2014. A number of years post-accident, he continued to allege significant accident-related symptoms and advanced, amongst other things, allegations that he would suffer ongoing future inability to work and associated loss of earnings.
Following a 2-day trial and extensive cross-examination of the Claimant, despite a finding that the Claimant had genuinely suffered a very modest injury (the quantum of which being assessed at £1,500), the court was satisfied that the claim was tainted by “fundamental dishonesty” such that the entirety of his claim was dismissed, with leave to enforce costs in full.
Adam was instructed by Lee Cook at DAC Beachcroft.
