It might be hard to believe, but almost one in four Americans think it’s acceptable to defraud insurers.
Insurance fraud is a burden on the U.S. economy with an estimated $80 billion being paid out every year in fraudulent insurance claims. Insurance firms, business owners and corporations need to protect their investments as insurance fraud is becoming more prevalent than ever in the workplace.
If you yourself have been accused of insurance fraud, a qualified private investigator can help clear your name by gathering evidence to help ensure that your insurance company pays you the full amount to which you are entitled.
