What is insurance fraud?
Lying or exaggerating on an insurance claim is defined as insurance fraud. If an insured individual was injured, they are entitled to receive compensation for their hospital costs and medical bills. In order to receive this money, some people choose to report their injuries as more severe than they actually are. Another form of insurance fraud is the sale of fake insurance policies or unlicensed coverage. In other cases, the insurance broker can steal the clients insurance premiums.
Fake claims cost insurance companies billions of dollars every year. These are not solely limited to health insurance for injuries or illnesses, but life insurance, house insurance, car insurance, and more. Sometimes the offenders will simply lie about the severity of the incident, but others will intentionally damage homes or vehicles in order to receive payment. Financial gain is the main cause of insurance fraud.
If you were accused of insurance fraud, it is important that you are aware of the possible penalties you could be facing. Not only could you be required to pay steep fines, but you could be forced to pay restitution. Probation, parole, and community service, could also be part of your sentence as well as time in jail or prison.
