Suffered Losses Due to Fraud? We Can Help!
Insurance fraud happens when individuals deceive an insurance company to
collect money to which they are not entitled. Depending on the extent,
this can be a misdemeanor or a felony.
Fraud can also be committed by insurance companies, as insurers will deny
legitimate claims made by policyholders.
Insurance fraud is separated into two categories:
Soft fraud: When a person exaggerates an existing claim, it is usually treated as a
misdemeanor resulting in fines, jail time, community service, or probation.
Hard fraud: When a person causes or fabricates a loss for the purpose of obtaining
payment, this is a felony punishable by incarceration for a number of years.
What Is Considered a False/Misleading Claim?
To be charged with fraud, a defendant must knowingly make a false or misleading
statement in support of, in opposition to, or in connection with a claim.
This includes false or exaggerated claims made to physicians or false
statements from providers regarding services performed. To be considered
fraudulent, the statement must be important to the claim.
Types of insurance fraud include:
Healthcare claims: Medical providers may submit claims for procedures they didn’t perform.
Automobile claims: A person might claim that the damage from an accident is greater than it is.
Property claims: A person may exaggerate the severity of damage incurred from a loss.
Life claims: A person may attempt to obtain payment by fabricating their death or that
