Consumers rely on various forms of insurance, including health, life, auto, and home-owners insurance. Every year, however, many consumers become victims of insurance frauds and scams, often costing them thousands of dollars.
Our consumer protection attorneys represent victims of insurance scams and fraud, enforcing their rights under various consumer protection laws and fighting to recover their losses.
In the Blue Shield class action lawsuit, for example, we recovered $6.5 million on behalf of Blue Shield of California customers who alleged their premiums rose by as much as 40% with no warning or opportunity to switch to a comparable plan.
Types of Insurance Scams & Fraud
Insurance is one of the more expensive and important items a consumer can purchase. Less than honest companies can take advantage of this by making false promises and other misrepresentations to induce consumers to sign up for their policies. Some common insurance scams involve:
- Insurance Agents & Agency Fraud
- Health Insurance Fraud
- Car & Auto Insurance Fraud
- Life Insurance Fraud
- Bait-And-Switch Schemes
- Force-placed insurance
