Crash for Cash


Duncan Lewis Fraud Solicitors – Crash for Cash


Crash for cash – or cash for crash – is a form of motor insurance fraud which may involve making a personal injury claim for hard-to-diagnose conditions such as whiplash injury, back pain or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).


Disproving allegations of crash for cash can involve technical expertise according to the circumstances of the crash.


Those facing allegations of crash for cash may have a history of road traffic accidents and related injuries or may simply be motorists caught up in a scam whose car was also involved in the faked road accident.


Motor insurance companies now thoroughly investigate any suspicions that crash for cash has taken place and a case may go to trial if sufficient evidence is obtained that a road crash was deliberately engineered for the purpose of making an insurance claim.


Duncan Lewis fraud solicitors can offer expert legal advice even before a formal investigation into crash for cash is launched or if an individual or group of people fear they may face allegations or charges relating to crash for cash.


Our team regularly defend those facing investigation for serious fraud – including crash for cash – and can liaise with the Insurance Fraud Bureau and other investigating agencies, including:

  • City of London Police
  • Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
  • Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)
  • Federation Against Copyright Theft
  • Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
  • Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
  • National Crime Agency (NCA)
  • Office of Fair Trading (OFT)
  • Serious Fraud Office (SFO)
  • Trading Standards


Our lawyers can also advise on Confiscations Orders under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), as well as civil asset recovery proceedings under POCA.
