Insurance companies blame car accident victims for rising premiums – again.
Earlier this month, Mark Allen, fraud and financial crime manager at the Association of British Insurers, said:
“The extent to which people think it is acceptable to lie to the insurance industry is shocking. All law-abiding motorists end up paying the bill for fraudsters who invent and exaggerate injuries to claim compensation they are not entitled to.”
He went on to say that:
“The Government’s reforms to shut down the whiplash gravy-train cannot come soon enough and in the meantime, people should be warned that the insurance industry is determined to root out and prosecute those who try to take advantage of the system.”
