Defense Attorneys for Those Accused of Fraudulent Insurance Claims
Insurance companies are vigilant in their efforts to detect fraudulent claims. In certain instances, they may bring their allegations to the police, who in turn will seek an arrest. If you or someone you love faces insurance fraud charges, you need a lawyer who will mount a complete defense to these charges. We are the Morristown, New Jersey, law firm of Maynard Law Office, LLC. Our founding partner, James Maynard, brings nearly 20 years of experience to protecting the rights of people accused of crimes.
Our New Jersey insurance fraud lawyers are prepared to act on your behalf in any situation, including allegations of:
- Auto insurance fraud
- Homeowners insurance fraud
- Workers’ compensation fraud
- Medicare or Medicaid fraud
- Unemployment fraud
Fraud can involve any number of acts, including submitting a false claim or false information. In New Jersey, insurance fraud is generally charged as a third-degree crime, punishable by three to five years in jail. In certain cases, insurance fraud can be charged as a second-degree crime.
Most insurance fraud cases are not initiated by the police. Rather, insurance companies will investigate behavior they believe to be fraudulent and turn the contents of their investigation over to law enforcement agents. Therefore, if you have reason to believe the insurance company is investigating your claim, it is helpful to have legal counsel on your side immediately. The sooner we get involved, the more we can do to prevent charges from being filed in the first place. If charges have been filed, you have an even greater need for our counsel. We will leave no stone unturned in our investigation of your case, and will bring the full weight of our experience to bear in your defense.
