IFED gets court result

Car crash personal injury fraudster jailed

A fraudster who falsely claimed a car crash left him seriously injured to get a £1,700 up-front payment from a solicitor firm was jailed for 6 months and ordered to repay his victim £500 at Preston Crown Court on Friday 29 May.

Imran Shah, aged 39, of Earl Street in Blackburn, said the collision saw him hospitalised for weeks with cuts, fractures and broken bones but IFED’s investigation revealed he was never treated.

He had previously pleaded guilty to the crime at the same court.
