Met Police Deny Selling Accident Details

Met police are denying claims they have sold the details of accident victims to claims companies.

A survey of 2,000 adults involved in an accident in the past three years, by insurance firm LV, revealed that one in four would never have made a claim if they had not been pressured.

One in 20 said they were contacted within two hours of an accident, sometimes while they were receiving medical attention, while one in five said they were encouraged to make a claim by a police officer.

Scotland Yard say they only share private details with solicitors and insurance companies acting on behalf of the victim, for which they charge an admin fee.

The fees have added up to £5 million since 2009.
