Tampa Insurance Fraud Attorneys
Filing False Claims In Florida
When individuals or corporations intentionally deceive an insurance company or agent in order to collect money to which they are not entitled, they can be charged with insurance fraud (18 U.S.C. Sections 1007, 1014, 1033 and 1035). Additionally, insurance companies or agents can defraud policyholders.
Because insurance fraud costs Americans an estimated $54 billion a year, it is often aggressively prosecuted. Penalties for conviction will depend on the specifics of the offense, but may include fines and/or a prison sentence. In addition, you may face penalties for other charges associated with insurance fraud such as mail and wire fraud, arson or Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) charges.
