Smith v London Borough of Haringey [2021] EWHC 615 (QB)

Dishonest personal injury claim The claimant had been attacked by a patient while on duty as team leader. The judge decided that she would be entitled to damages of £2,587.50, but dismissed her claim in its entirety because her fundamental dishonesty had meant a simple low value personal injury claim had developed into a serious injury claim for over £600,000.
