Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud may take a number of forms, including providing false details in order to obtain insurance, making false claims, destroying property in order to obtain a payout, or claiming for loss or damage that has never in fact occurred.

Insurance contracts are made in utmost good faith, so where the accusations are of providing false details, complex legal and factual issues can arise concerning whether the information provided really was correct to the best of the applicant’s knowledge and belief.

Where allegations of staged accidents (e.g. fires) are concerned, expert evidence is often at the forefront of cases in proving whether the incident really was staged, and if so, whether it was staged by the accused. Cases such as these may also give rise to further allegations including criminal damage and, in cases where there has been loss of life, manslaughter or even murder.
