Imaginary fraud in this case as that absolutely did not happen but fraud all the same.
Would it not only be fraud if the solicitor in question knew that the prospective client was not actually injured?

Is it? Doesn't seem clear to me that the solicitor knew he was uninjured?

That would be my reading of it. If pointy was uninjured it is unlikely that a Solicitor could have genuinely thought he had an injury worth 60k, in fairness.

It was a slight fall some bruising but nothing major and it was the solicitor who was on at me to take it to court he was all for it. Ffs he rang me twice afterwards to see if I wanted to go further.

If anyone was unhinged looking for money it was the solicitor. As I said already karma has a way of coming back to bite you and I was happy that I hadn't been seriously hurt and was happy to leave it at that.


This might not fit in with you're world view of this profession but there as many snakes in suits as dirtbirds on the streets.

I reckon there are more snakes in suits. I mean power leads to corruption.
A politician needs to present a new law to The Dail, before he does he has to consult specialists in that area. He does that, will those specialists ever put wording into a law that will affect their profession negatively?

I doubt that very much and it can be demonstrated by the amount of cases that have taken place at the expense of the tax payer to test these new laws.

The question therefore has to be asked, are the guys writing new laws competent at it or is there vested interests at work?

I remember a case going back about 10 years when a woman sued the corporation for damage to her leg due to a fall on the footpath outside merchants quay when the footpath was being repaired only for the defendants to prove that the work on the footpath took place 3 weeks after her fall. Surely her solicitor should have checked out if her story was correct and if cases are to blatant as this one was no fee should be paid to the solicitor for his own stupidity.
