Advocacy on Either Side of the Case

An insurance beneficiary may commit insurance fraud by making a false statement to obtain some insurance benefit or advantage to which the beneficiary is not otherwise entitled. The alleged fraud could involve something serious, like arson or a staged car accident. At times, the alleged conduct could more minor, involving a mistake in calculating loss from a flood.

Insurance Fraud may also be perpetuated by the insurer. The FBI estimates that $40 billion is misappropriated annually through several insurance related schemes including: premium diversion (collecting premiums but not providing the sums to the underwriter); not paying valid claims; fee churning (the repeated taking of commissions for reinsurance agreements that reduce the premium to nil); and misappropriation of workers compensation insurance.

Defending an alleged insurance fraud scheme is a complicated task, requiring attorneys who understand the nuances of white collar criminal defense.
