Understanding Insurance Fraud
If there is a suspicion of wrongdoing involving insurance, the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) will initiate an inquiry, and they have the authority to investigate, arrest, and provide assistance to the prosecution. They will look into possible fraudulent activities of insurance agents, health care providers, policyholders, and businesses. If they discover acts that were intended to misrepresent facts or deceive others for financial gain, the offender may be subject to arrest. The crime of insurance fraud includes, but is not limited to: selling insurance without a license, falsifying applications, selling fake policies, overbilling for medical treatment, and submitting fake claims for homeowners insurance or automobile accidents. Likewise, lying about a work-related injury is workers’ compensation insurance fraud. Conviction can mean the following for a defendant:
- Sentence in federal or state prison
- Payment of restitution and court costs
The value of the fraudulent claim usually determines the amount of restitution. Conviction can affect the offender in other areas of life such as employment, reputation, relationships, and more. We work closely with clients at each step during the defense. The defense can challenge each piece of evidence presented by the prosecution, which can include documents, emails, witness statements, and other evidence used to build a case against the defendant. Working hard to achieve the best possible case outcome is always our goal. Make an appointment today for a consultation regarding your insurance fraud case. Have you been charged in federal court?
