      “Setting aside” fraudulent personal injury settlements north of the border Hayward v Zurich Insurance Company

      The Supreme Court recently unanimously held that where a party has settled a claim despite suspecting fraud, the settlement agreement can subsequently be set aside should that party later discover evidence confirming fraud. Importantly, the Court did not consider it necessary for the defrauded party to have believed the misrepresentation upon which it relied to its detriment.

      The continuing upward trend of Scottish fatal awards

      As personal injury practitioners, there has been a continuing battle against the uncertainty of what the appropriate award should be to grieving relatives for loss of their loved ones. In our 2015 case law round-up we reported on the highest award ever made by a Scottish Jury for distress, grief and loss of society in the case of Anderson & others v Brig Brae Garage Ltd. In that case, the widow was awarded £140,000, an infant child £80,000 and father £80,000.
