What is Insurance Fraud Crime?

Insurance fraud is a theft crime and occurs when a person makes false insurance claims in order to obtain compensation or benefits to which they do not qualify for. There are many types of insurance fraud such as health insurance, car insurance, life insurance and property insurance; to name a few.

There are 3 elements of an insurance fraud theft charge that must be found prior to a conviction:

  1. The accused must have knowingly made a false or misleading statement.
  2. The statement is made in connection with a claim or payment made or to be made under the terms of an insurance policy.
  3. The statement is relevant or of importance, to the insurance payment or claim.

False insurance claims affect the nation as a whole, not just insurance companies. Because of this, Florida punishes those who commit insurance fraud harshly.

If the fraudulent claim is valued at less than $20,000, the crime of insurance fraud is a third-degree felony. A third-degree felony carries consequences of up to 5 years in prison and fines of up to $5,000.

If the fraud is valued at more than $20,000 but less than $100,000, the crime of insurance fraud is a second-degree felony. A second-degree felony carries consequences of up to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

If the fraud is valued at more than $100,000 or more, the crime of Insurance Fraud is a first-degree felony. A first-degree felony carries consequences of up to 30 years in prison and fines of up to $1,000.

In addition to any criminal punishment, if you are convicted of violating insurance profits from a motor vehicle insurance agreement you are also subject to a civil penalty, which will mean additional fines.

Insurance Fraud Defenses in Fort Lauderdale

  • Lack of Knowledge: The main goal of insurance fraud defense is to defraud it. If you are charged with the crime of insurance fraud, the State must prove that the accused had knowledge of the fraud they were committing. Without that proof, the defense of lack of knowledge can be used and serve as a complete defense to the crime of insurance fraud. Being unaware of the law is not a defense of itself, but it certainly aids the argument and allows your defense attorney to prove you did not know you were committing the crime of insurance fraud.

    In one of the most stressful times in my life, Rossen Law Firm was there for me. Leaving no stone unturned they provided patience and knowledge in every detail of my case. I’m very thankful and proud of this law firm family and especially of my lawyer, Scott Simmons for guiding, defending and helping me in every way possible. He and this law firm family come highly recommended from personal experience!!!

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
