Insurance Fraud Attorney in Tampa & Insurance Fraud Lawyer in Brandon, Florida
Insurance Fraud is taken very seriously in Florida. Insurance Companies have adjusters and investigators dedicated solely to identification of fraudulent claims. The statutes on insurance fraud are very broad. Pursuant to Florida Statute 817.234, it is insurance fraud to make any oral or written statement to an insurer that contains any false, incomplete, or misleading information concerning any fact or thing material. This could be in relation to a claim or to the application for insurance itself. In some cases, failing to volunteer certain information can give rise to an insurance fraud charge.
Typically, insurance fraud is charged as a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in state prison, five years of probation, fines and court costs, and restitution to the victim. In addition to these penalties, insurance fraud could result in the victim may pursuing damages in civil court, and could lead to difficulties in obtaining future employment and insurance of all types.
