Illinois Fraudulent Insurance Claims Defense Lawyers
Aggressive Insurance Fraud Attorneys Serving Clients in Chicago and Nationwide
Insurance fraud costs insurers millions of dollars each year. Consumers regularly make all types of false claims, such as claiming to have a debilitating medical condition, claiming vehicle or personal property theft, lying about the cause of damage to their home, and countless others. In recent years, scams involving fraudulent insurance claims have become increasingly sophisticated, and it is becoming more challenging to discern the difference between a fraudulent and legitimate claim.

Common Signs of Insurance Fraud
Our experienced attorneys understand what red flags to look for to identify a fraudulent claim. Some of the most common include:
- Late Notice of Claim
- Impeding Access to Claim Information
- Criminal Conduct
- Exaggeration of Damages
We understand the need to press for evidence of fraud along all points of the insurance transaction, including going back to the very earliest application paperwork. Fraud can and does occur at the application stage, upon the first manifestation of the claim, when the claim is actually filed, and after the claim is processed and funds are disbursed. We perform a rapid and thorough investigation to identify any evidence of fraud, no matter where along the process it occurred.

We offer consultation on insurance fraud, loss investigation, settlement practices, claims handling, and much more. Our network of skilled investigators, expert witnesses, and other specialists can uncover evidence of nonexistent bodily injuries, proof of arson claimed as an act of God, and show fictional theft.
