Insurance fraud expert witnesses may testify on insurance claims, insurance regulations, and associated matters. On their website, the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud writes:
Low-Risk Crime. Insurance cheaters view insurance fraud as a low-risk, high-reward game, and far safer than drug trafficking or armed robbery. Consider:
Six states still don’t have specific insurance fraud laws, thus discouraging many prosecutors from tackling tough fraud cases.
Courts are getting tougher on convicted schemers, but too often jail sentences still are light, with courts often reserving space in overcrowded prisons for people convicted of more-violent crimes.
Professional societies overseeing doctors and lawyers often are reluctant to discipline peers convicted of insurance fraud.
