Rizan and another v Hayes and another

Personal injuries – Action. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, upheld the dismissal of the claimants' claims for damages, in which they had alleged they had suffered whiplash injuries in a motor accident. The judge's finding that, had it been necessary so to have decided, the claim had been fraudulent would be set aside. However, the judge had not been faced with a binary choice between conspiracy or an accident as alleged. He had given his reasons for having regarded the evidence before him as unreliable and his reasons, with one exception, were cogent and compelling.
