Patrick Carelli/PPI Claim

We recently acted for self-employed businessman Patrick Carelli in a Payment Protection Insurance Claim (PPI) against GE Capital Woodchester Limited before the District Court.

This was a hotly contested case as it was seen by both parties as a ‘test case’ for the Courts in terms of how PPI claims would be ruled upon going forward.

The case was settled on the day of the hearing and we received almost €7,000 in full and final settlement of the case. The Defendants missold this PPI product in that Mr.Carelli was self-employed and could not avail of the insurance because of this and therefore the insurance was effectively useless.

Mr.Carelli was delighted with the outcome of the case and it demonstrates, for now at least, that the Banks are willing to settle these types of PPI cases.
