Certain medical and personal factors may trigger a fraud investigation in a personal injury claim. These red flags may prompt the insurance adjuster to launch an investigation in your case for fraud, even if your claim is legitimate. A New Jersey injury attorney can guide you in avoiding the triggering of a fraud investigation.
Steps to Take to Avoid a Fraud Investigation
There are certain steps you can take to avoid triggering a fraud investigation in your personal injury claim. One of the most important things is to ensure that your version of how the accident occurred is consistent with other sources, such as police reports. Any inconsistency may further lead to other red flags in your case and ultimately trigger a fraud investigation.
Additionally, you should also make sure that you or your New Jersey personal injury attorney file all of your paperwork on time. Failing to report your injuries in a timely manner can make the adjuster suspicious. For example, it does not make sense for an injury to need treatment weeks or months after the date of the accident.
On the other hand, a serious medical treatment that is started too early (on the same day of the accident or within a couple of days) may also raise suspicion as a faulty diagnosis or treatment.
These are only some of the numerous steps your attorney will warn you about in avoiding the triggering of a fraud investigation in your personal injury claim. The best advice is to hire a New Jersey personal injury attorney who can guide expertly guide you in successfully handling your claim.
