Insurance Fraud and Motor Vehicle Collisions
by Robert A. DuBois

This manual tells you exactly how people are getting away with millions of dollars in fraudulent claims. The author wastes no time in presenting typical fraudulent claim scenarios and what can be done to disprove them. He also explains expert ways to get to the truth of any collision.

You will find practical information that can be used by everyone involved in settling a claim. For law enforcement officers, it pinpoints the kinds of evidence that typically show an intent to defraud. For insurance company representatives, it describes the crucial information that can be brought to light by the crash investigator or reconstructionist. Doctors and medical personnel will find explanations of the types of injuries favored by perpetrators of fraud while personal injury attorneys will find highlights of the circumstances that are likely to accompany the filing of fraudulent claims resulting from staged or alleged motor vehicle crashes.

In addition to the scenarios, the author includes an interviewing checklist, a behavioral profile of a liar, a vehicle damage checklist, definitions of common medical terminology and multiple diagrams showing how cars should react in particular collisions. And since photographs lend credibility and substance to a claim, an entire chapter is devoted to photographing the scene.

Other chapters in the manual include:

  • Insurance Fraud Schemes
  • The Investigation
  • The Damaged Vehicle
  • Occupant Kinematics
