What can I do if a fraudulent insurance claim is being made against me?

Recently a claim was made against me by a third party - I was involved in the incident not long ago, however, no damage or injury was done (confirmed by a police report). The settlement is for over £8k and claims for car repair and injury. Is that qualified as a insurance claim fraud and if so where I can seek help? I've sent the report to the insurer and waiting for over a week for any answer.

Contact your insurer and advise them that you wish for them to defend this claim on the basis of it being a "vexatious" claim. Provide your insurer with the police report. If the other party had no damage or injury, it certainly sounds like a fraudulent claim. Contact www.cityoflondon.police.uk/advice-and-support/frau...x
