When the Insurance Company Investigates Your Personal Injury Claim for Fraud

If you are filing a personal injury claim with your insurance company due to an accident, you may be wondering what might prompt the insurer to investigate your case for fraud, even if you know your claim is legitimate. There are many factors, both personal and medical, that might trigger a fraud investigation in a personal injury claim. An Irvine personal injury attorney may be able to help answer your questions.

Personal injury lawyer-Samer HabbasYour account of how the accident happened will be scrutinized closely. If your version has any inconsistencies, or if you later change your story of how the accident happened after hearing information from another source, the insurer may begin to wonder if there is anything else about your claim that won’t stand up to scrutiny. Your case may also trigger the insurer’s alarm if there were no witnesses to the accident or witness accounts conflict with your account.

Be sure to file your paperwork on time. The insurer may suspect something is fishy if you fail to report your injuries in a timely manner. It looks suspicious if an injury needing treatment suddenly pops up weeks or even months after the accident occurred. However, being too timely may also look suspicious: if your attorney’s letter to the adjuster is dated the day of the accident or very soon thereafter, the adjuster may get suspicious.

There are several indications that might cause an adjuster to want to investigate your case more closely.
