Fraudster sentenced to 12 months following private prosecution

Allianz Insurance v Fitzhugh Stephenson A fraudster who submitted a false £4,000 personal injury claim has been handed an immediate 12 month prison sentence with no suspension following a successful private prosecution by Allianz Insurance and defendant law firm, Keoghs. The hugely significant judgment, which also saw the insurer recover all costs via central funds, was the first of its kind for Allianz, and has laid down an important marker in the fight against insurance fraud.
