Insurance Fraud Lawyers

If an insurance company or law enforcement agency has recently accused you of committing insurance fraud, you must respond right away so that you can protect yourself, your future and your reputation from irreversible damage. Judges and prosecutors take these charges seriously and will do everything in their power to bring you to justice. The worst part is that they can even target innocent people who have made honest mistakes.

No matter if you are a medical professional or a policyholder, you could face allegations when you least expect it. Moving forward without help is unwise and will probably destroy your chance of reaching a fair outcome. When you want to keep yourself out of harm’s way, turn to a trusted insurance fraud defense attorney as soon as you can. Doing so will reduce your odds of being convicted and provide you with the best possible results.

Insurance Fraud Defined

You will need to learn as much as you can about insurance fraud and how it works, which will give you a better understanding of the charges you are facing. Insurance fraud is the process of lying on an insurance claim to collect benefits to which you would otherwise not have access. In cases of soft fraud, patients will exaggerate the nature or impact of a legitimate claim to increase the amount of compensation they can collect.

Hard fraud occurs when people invent claims or stage accidents so that they can collect compensation, and this type is much easier for insurance companies and law enforcement to detect and prosecute. If you work in the medical field, law enforcement agencies can accuse you of filing a claim for services that you did not provide. Insurance fraud also covers cases in which medical professionals overcharge or lie about the type of treatment that they offered. If you are under investigation and don’t want to face unneeded problems, ask an insurance fraud lawyer for advice on what you should do next.

Insurance Fraud Penalties

When they are first accused of committing insurance fraud, most people ask about the type of penalties they could face if they lose in court, which is understandable. Prosecutors will usually seek a misdemeanor conviction when they suspect that someone has committed soft fraud, and you can face up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $15,000. If you commit hard fraud or are a medical expert and commit billing fraud, you will likely face felony charges, steep fines and up to five years in prison.

How Your Case Will Likely Progress

At this point, you might want to know how your case will move forward so that you can prepare yourself for the future. Fraud cases normally begin when an insurance company detects red flags that trigger an internal investigation. The insurance company will look into your past claims to detect a pattern of unusual behavior, but it can also conduct an audit and utilize private investigators. Since it does not want to give you time to cover your tracks, the insurance company is unlikely to notify you of the investigation at this point.

If your insurance company believes that it has enough evidence to pursue charges, it will hand the case over to a relevant law enforcement agency. Depending on what evidence they use against you, the police can obtain an arrest warrant and place you in jail. If you can afford your bail, you can get out from behind bars until the conclusion of your case. Your case will likely end with a plea deal if you are like other defendants. You can take your case to court if you are not pleased with the deal offered by the prosecution, and a jury will decide your fate.

How You Can Defend Yourself

When you are at risk for going to prison and being forced to pay fines, you must put in the effort to learn about your possible defenses. You can earn a verdict of not guilty if you can prove that the evidence against you is false, but that is only one approach. Since nobody is perfect, the errors on your claim could be the result of an honest mistake. Your insurance fraud attorney will look at the details of your case and help you form an effective defense.

How an Insurance Fraud Attorney Can Help

When you are facing insurance fraud allegations and enlist the support and guidance of a criminal defense attorney, your legal expert will learn about your case, review the evidence and help you understand the situation. Your attorney will tell you about the possible outcomes and what you can do to protect yourself and reduce the damage. A qualified and caring lawyer will search for holes in the prosecutor’s case to create reasonable doubt.

When you have a fraud defense attorney on your side, you will gain a fair deal from the prosecutor’s office, but you will also have the opportunity to challenge the accusations if you are not happy with the terms. If you decide to fight, your attorney will defend your name, reputation and future in front of a judge and jury.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
