In New York, insurance claims and insurance fraud have been sky rocketing. As economic times become more difficult for people, otherwise law-abiding citizens are looking to find ways to alleviate their economic grief. This has resulted in Auto Insurance Fraud, Health Insurance and Personal Injury Fraud. Mortgage Fraud cases are being brought by both District Attorneys and U.S. Attorneys. People are being caught lying on applications, misquoting their incomes, falsifying income tax returns and numerous other violations. As a result, the prisons are being filled with bankers and customers who have conspired to illegally obtain loans.
Car Insurance or Auto Insurance Fraud is also on the rise. People are arranging to have their cars "stolen" when in reality they are selling their car to a "chop shop." Then they report the car stolen to get out from under the lease or loan payment. This results in an arrest for both Insurance Fraud and Grand Larceny, which are both Felonies in New York.
Personal Injury Fraud is also on the rise. This generally covers two areas. People falsifying or staging car accidents so they can place a claim with the Insurance Company for injuries that they claim resulted from the "accident." Another type of Personal Injury Insurance Fraud that exists is Workers Compensation Fraud. People will fake an injury at work in the hope of collecting disability. Any New York Insurance Fraud Lawyer will tell you the most common type of Workers Compensation Insurance Fraud occurs when the worker fakes the injury and is successful in collecting the claim. Then, they go out and get a job "off the books" to supplement their income. Little do they know that the Lawyers for the Insurance Companies are hiring private investigators to follow people.
