Skilled Insurance Fraud Attorney in Knoxville

There are basically two types of insurance fraud.

  • Soft fraud occurs when people exaggerate the facts to their insurance companies. For example, when a homeowner inflates the value of property stolen in a robbery, that homeowner has committed insurance fraud.
  • Hard fraud is when someone deliberately fakes an injury, an accident, theft, or arson in order to collect from the insurance company. In the worst case scenario, a life insurance beneficiary might kill someone in order to collect on the policy.

Although most anti-fraud laws are state statutes, insurance fraud cases are frequently prosecuted as federal crimes as the fraudulent activity also violates federal law. Additionally, US law used to prosecute insurance industry professionals for insurance fraud, and federal law is also violated when Medicare, Medicaid, or Tri-Care fraud is committed. Criminal penalties for insurance fraud can be severe. If you are facing these accusations, seek representation by an experienced Knoxville criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
