Auto Insurance Fraud 

The District Attorney's Office recognizes that with the growing sophistication of automobile insurance fraud rings, an equally sophisticated and aggressive law enforcement effort is required to combat them.  To that end, the District Attorney's Office has established an Automobile Insurance Fraud Division with specially trained staff to investigate and prosecute this costly criminal activity, which can include:

 

burnedcar
  • Staged accidents
  • "Paper" accidents which never actually occurred
  • Medical treatment fraud
  • Fraudulent claims by auto body repair shops
  • Fraud involving the issuance of insurance policies or processing of claims
  • Feigned or staged automobile thefts
  • Crimes of violence, such as manslaughter, which may arise from staged accidents

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Auto Insurance Fraud Division focuses on the prosecution of individuals or groups engaged in multiple acts of insurance fraud.  Defendants can include claimants, policy holders, attorneys, doctors, chiropractors, law office administrators, body shop operators and insurance agents or brokers.  Resources
