Insurance Fraud

Insurance was established to provide protection for an individual’s health, property, and possessions in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Individuals who attempt to take advantage of the system by making false claims, committing illegal acts, or other methods may be accused of insurance fraud.

Individuals who are accused of insurance fraud may face criminal prosecution, fines, and jail time. If you have been accused of insurance fraud, contact Austin criminal defense attorney Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950.

Types of Insurance Fraud

Many different types of insurance claims may be investigated for fraud, including:

  • Automobile collision reports
  • Automobile loss or incidental damage
  • Medical insurance claims
  • Life insurance claims
  • Fire damage
  • Property damage
  • Burglary
  • Healthcare
  • Worker’s compensation

In order to avoid investigation, people who file insurance claims should make sure to follow the filing guidelines set by their insurance agency. Individuals should be careful not to exaggerate their claims and should tell the truth at all times. It is wise to keep documentation of any property that is covered by insurance, including serial numbers and receipts if possible. If your claim is investigated, you may want to consider consulting a legal professional to be aware of your rights.
