Insurance Fraud Defense
In Utah, insurance fraud, like credit card fraud, has become a statutory crime as a result of heavy lobbying from the industry affected by the fraudulent activity. As a result, if you defraud an insurance company you will be facing unique penalties, which often times can be much harsher than the penalties attached to general fraud charges.
What is Insurance Fraud?
You probably have a good idea of what insurance fraud is in Utah. Basically, insurance fraud occurs anytime anyone makes a false or misleading statement to an insurance company with the intent to defraud the insurance company of funds in the form of a payout of claims. So, if you tell your home owners insurance company that your friend was injured on your property when he wasn’t, you have committed insurance fraud. Or, if your husband wrecks your car through no fault of anyone but his own and you claim that it was involved in a hit and run accident, you have committed insurance fraud.
