Using geography to combat fraud – the great bus whiplash claim

In this video case study we explain how Ordnance Survey data was used to prove that claims for a whiplash injury during a bus accident were fraudulent. Our analysis found that the majority of the claimants (who claimed to be travelling home on the bus at the time of the accident), lived miles away from the bus route – and there was in fact another bus route closer to their homes.
