Insurance Fraud Defense in West Palm Beach

Insurance fraud is the intentional misrepresentation of material facts and circumstances to an insurance company in order to obtain payment that would not otherwise be made. Insurance fraud is generally carried out through the submission of false insurance claims.  

Some examples of the types of insurance fraud include: 

  • Automobile Collision (e.g., hit and run, sudden stop, phantom vehicle, right of way) 
  • Automobile Property (e.g., faked damages, vehicle theft, vandalism, inflated damages) 
  • Medical (e.g., slip and fall, disability, inflated billing) 
  • Life (e.g., suspicious death, fraudulent policy) 
  • Workers' Compensation 
  • Fire 
  • Property (e.g., residential, commercial, mold, vandalism)  

Conviction for insurance fraud can result in serious penalties (mandatory restitution of lost income, loss of professional license and substantial prison sentences). It is critical to hire a criminal defense attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in fighting such complicated charges.  If you're being investigated or charged with insurance fraud, call the Law Office of Ann Fitz to schedule your free consultation today.
