Description

The idea of “staged” accidents and motor vehicle accident fraud may seem like something out of a Fast and the Furious movie plot. However, those in the commercial transportation and insurance industries know that fraudulent accidents are an increasing problem that costs companies, insurers, and consumers billions of dollars each year. Far from a random, one-off act by an unsophisticated ne’er-do-well, fraudulent accidents are typically perpetrated by well-organized criminal rings. This presentation addresses common scenarios for staged accidents and fraudulent personal injury claims, as well as red flags that drivers, motor carriers, insurers, and defense attorneys should be on the lookout for when an accident or injury claim seems questionable. We will also discuss tips for investigating and defending against suspicious accidents and claims.
