Insurance fraud is epidemic
Insurance fraud continuously takes more money each year than it did from insurance buyers. There is no specific number. Most attempts at insurance fraud succeed. Estimates of the extent of insurance fraud in the United States range from $ 87 billion to more than $ 300 billion each year.
Insurers and government-backed pseudo-insurance companies can only estimate the extent to which they lose for fraudulent claims. The lack of adequate investigation and prosecution of insurance offenders is endemic. Most insurance frauds are not detected. Those who are discovered do so because they became greedy, careless and unprofessional so that the attempt at fraud becomes so obvious that it cannot be ignored. car crashes are fake. Claims on property and accidents against car insurance are not much better and amount to about 10% fraud.

Knowledge of insurance is required to adequately investigate insurance fraud
Before insurance fraud can be understood, it is important to understand what insurance is and how it works. Insurance is not a right granted by the Constitution to all residents of the United States. It is an agreement between an insurance company and a person or company called the insured. Insurance is only an "agreement in which one undertakes to replace another. against loss, damage or liability that arises as a result of a possible or unknown event. "[California Insurance Code Section 22] That's all that insurance is: a contract.
It is a special type of contract where for the insurer agrees to compensate the insured for loss, damage to property or liability as long as the event for which damages are claimed is sought. conditional or unknown when the insurance was acquired. A condition that already exists is not conditional or unknown. You should not be able to buy insurance against the fire loss in a home after it burns down. A person should not be able to buy health insurance to treat cancer only after the cancer has been diagnosed. Car liability insurance purchased after an accident is not an insurance and should not compensate the insured for damage caused.
Insurance fraud exists because its perpetrators want to make money by not following the above definition. Those who commit insurance fraud intend to create loss, damage or liability rather than join the pool for those who have no losses but want to protect themselves against possible or unknown events.
