Not OT at all - hopefully a dashcam would prove it's false

Daughters boyfriend recently sat stationary in queue and nudged similar BMW car in front when his foot slipped off clutch - they exchanged details because guy claimed the rusty vertical crease had just happened despite nothing matching shape on his bumper

Lad informed insurance and a day later they contact him saying bloke, wife and baby all in pain and having nightmares now claiming compensation

Insurance just paid and didn't challenge it so that's why they do it and why our insurance is going up every year Evil or Very Mad

£11.5k was paid out to the passenger, and SIXTY THOUSAND POUNDS was paid to the driver. He claimed he got night sweats and couldn't drive any distance without freaking out. How do you disprove that??

You can see why people are tempted to defraud insurance companies when figures like that are involved.

I get night sweats too. I just put a thinner duvet on the bed and all's good... Rolling with laughter 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed
