White Collar Crimes Defense | Utah Insurance Fraud Attorney
Insurance fraud is a specialized fraud charge that normally carries more severe penalties than a general fraud charge and that is because insurance companies have been able to lobby the legislature into writing laws like the insurance fraud statute. Much like credit card fraud, parties that are injured by certain types of fraud often encourage the legislature to make crimes against them especially severe as to deter criminal behavior and protect their assets.
Defining Insurance Fraud
When most people think of white collar crimes they think of something extremely complex, however, most can be reduced to simply notions of right and wrong. In the case of insurance fraud it can be defined in its simplest sense as lying to your insurance company to make money. For example, if you get in a wreck and misrepresent the facts of the wreck, like saying it was a hit and run, so you could get a payout then you have committed insurance fraud. Sometimes the important thing to note is that when you feel like you may be doing something wrong, you probably are.
