What You Need to Know About Cameron v Liverpool Victoria Insurance Co Ltd

Is it possible to sue an unnamed Defendant? Personal injury practitioners now have some guidance on the issue, thanks to the Supreme Court’s recent decision in the case of Cameron v Liverpool Victoria Insurance Co. Ltd.

In light of the judgment, we’ve put together a webinar to help you understand more about this much-awaited decision, and the impact it has on Claimants.

Cameron v Liverpool Victoria Insurance Co Ltd

In brief, the facts of the case are that Ms Cameron was injured when her vehicle collided with a Nissan Micra. The Micra fled the scene of the accident and was later traced to one Mr Hussain. Proceedings were issued against him, as it was alleged the accident had been caused by the Micra driver.

However, Mr Hussain was not insured to drive the vehicle, and in any event denied being the driver at the time of the incident. He refused to provide the identity of the driver and was convicted for failing to do so. The person named on the insurance policy is thought to be fictitious.

Consequently, the Claimant sought to change Mr Hussain’s name to ‘the person unknown…’ The matter worked its way through the County Court, High Court and the Court of Appeal. Finally, on 20th February 2019, the Supreme Court ruled that proceedings cannot be brought against unidentified drivers. Instead, the Claimant must pursue recompense via the MIB’s Untraced Driver’s Agreement.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.

    Very informative. Easy to understand. Not a typical course which you can easily lose concentration

    Thoroughly enjoyed it! It was both informative and practical, the fact it was quite hands on and interactive made the subject matter come to life and the topic elements sink in to some sort of structure! I feel like I actually understand some of the fundamental elements
