Internal Insurance Company Investigations
Before insurance fraud matters are turned over to the police, they are often investigated internally by the insurance company. A lawyer who is involved early on in the process is often able to achieve a resolution to the matter before criminal charges are filed, saving his clients from the stress and financial strain of a criminal case.
Criminal Penalties for Insurance Fraud
A conviction arising from insurance fraud charges can result in a number of penalties, depending on your previous criminal record. If you have previously been involved in fraud, the chances of incarceration increase. If you have no prior convictions or a compelling personal circumstance, a conviction could result in a fine or lesser penalty.
