Personal Injury Private Investigator in Maryland

by | Apr 12, 2020 | Investigative

Insurance fraud is rampant in the United States and according to a recent study, personal injury fraud claims account for between $5.6 billion and $7.7 billion annually.  This significant amount of fraudulent claims accounts for between 13 – 17% of personal injury claims annually.

In some cases, these claims net the fraudsters millions of dollars.  Often, smaller claims are settled out of court as a nuisance claim without investigation.  However, filing a fraudulent personal injury claim can result in serious consequences.  If discovered, the recipient of the ill-gotten gains may be forced to pay back the funds and could be responsible for punitive damages as well as criminal charges.
