Legal Help in Insurance Fraud Inquiries
The consequences of an insurance fraud investigation extend far beyond the repercussions of a denied insurance claim. You could end up in federal prison. Insurance fraud defense lawyer Solomon L. Wisenberg seeks to aggressively protect the interests of clients who are the subjects of insurance fraud inquiries. He also defend clients against federal charges of insurance fraud.
A Florida insurance broker was indicted on federal wire fraud charges in connection with an alleged scheme to pocket insurance premiums. Mr. Wisenberg were hired after the indictment was returned. All charges were dropped in the interests of justice two weeks before trial.
How It Can Happen
Some insurance companies don't like to pay claims. One of the ways these companies avoid paying valid claims is to review the policyholder's initial application for alleged fraud. If they find an intentional and material misstatement of fact, they can deny coverage, retroactively cancel the insurance policy, and turn the case over to the federal government for criminal prosecution.
The insurance industry is serious about investigating insurance fraud. The industry has its own fraud institute that is staffed, in part, by private investigators who are former federal agents and prosecutors. Their job is to identify fraud on the policyholder's application or claim, so the company won't have to pay. Policyholders should treat an insurance fraud inquiry with the same gravity they would a federal criminal investigation. Mr. Wisenberg handles all types of insurance fraud charges, including health insurance fraud, life insurance fraud, travel insurance fraud, homeowners' insurance fraud and allegations of staging a car accident.
