Insurance fraud allegations can take a variety of forms including the following:
If a person purposefully gives false information to an insurance company or conceals or misrepresents facts on an insurance application, he or she may be guilty of committing insurance fraud.
Insurance fraud is rarely a stand-alone crime. Related charges may include forgery, enterprise corruption, Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud. Most commonly, insurance fraud is committed in furtherance of grand larceny. In fact, the insurance fraud statute and the grand larceny statute are structured similarly in terms of penalties.
Whatever the allegations, whatever the circumstances, do not underestimate the seriousness of accusations or charges involving insurance fraud. When your case is still at the investigation stage — and you have not yet been charged — that may be the greatest opportunity to obtain a favorable outcome.
