I belive that he should pick up the costs, he shouldnt have lied about it in the first place. Clearly these companies are not ethical at all but he shouldnt have gone ahead with this claim and because he did he should be paying for there costs. He's not exactly doing himself any favours by coming to the papers, the fact of the matter is there was never a need for him to lie especially for the sake of decorating his house.

Through a claims management company, he was referred to solicitors, whom he instructed to raise an action on a no win no fee basis. He then changed his mind in respect of that instruction, on the basis that he lied to the solicitors in stating that he had suffered an injury when in fact he had not. He now owes money for the work carried out on his instructions. Action should be taken against any claims management companies encouraging people to lie, and all of the medical consultants who don't give bona fide medical opinions in respect of such injuries. Why he's making a complaint about solicitors who acted upon his instructions and undertakings, I'll never know. In fact, he would have been entitled to make a complaint had the solicitors FAILED to act on his instructions.

I get about a text a month saying I could get £3250 compensation for my accident, which is news to me. The accident, that is. It is a corrupt industry.
