The staggering scale of auto insurance fraud

They don’t always get the big headlines, but auto insurance fraud cases happen frequently. In Louisiana, the State Police Insurance Fraud/Auto Theft Unit announces arrests and investigations regularly. Cases may involve staged crashes, falsely reported injuries or other schemes meant to bilk insurance companies out of money.

What are the widespread ripple effects of insurance fraud?

It is likely that many people in Louisiana and nationally don’t get especially heated when they hear a story chronicling an egregious attempt to defraud one or more insurance companies. Indeed, the bad-faith effort of a scammer making bogus claims to garner unlawful profits is concerning, but its effects are relatively confined and do not generate broad-based public harm.

Spotlight on out-of-network providers in emergency situations

A story like the following will never garner positive publicity points for an insurance company. In fact, it will assuredly yield an immediately sharp public response, even without regard for underlying details.
