6/3/2011 - Questionable auto insurance claims persist in no-fault states


Experts say there have been a suspicious number of questionable auto insurance claims.

According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), there appears to be a link between the number of nationwide suspicious vehicle collision claims and bodily injury claims.

The report found that between 2009 and 2010, questionable claims and bodily injury claims rose in a similar fashion, at rates of 17 percent and 15 percent, respectively. What's more, bodily injury represented the largest portion of all no-fault auto insurance claims filed in that period.

Though the NICB says their report is not conclusive, the findings suggest that there is a correlation because, according to the group, there has been an increase in fraudulent activity in "no-fault" states like New York and Florida.

Recently, the president of the Insurance Information Institute called on New York legislators to amend their personal injury protection laws, saying no-fault auto insurance fraud in the Empire State was costing policyholders millions of dollars.
