Representation In Special Investigations And Insurance Fraud Matters
DeRouen Law Firm is experienced in providing legal services to insurance carriers, governmental agencies and self-insureds involved in investigating suspicious and fraudulent bodily injury and property insurance claims. Our firm works with the special investigations unit (SIU) of our insurance company clients from consultation about suspicious claims and with law enforcement for the prosecution of fraudulent claims.
Lawsuits filed by people who commit insurance fraud usually contain bad faith claims handling allegations against our clients so our expertise in that area of law also assists our clients in this practice area.
What Is The SIU?
Every insurance company has a division set up to investigate potentially fraudulent claims. Known as the SIU, this division is often brought in when an insurance claim is filed and there is something amiss that may raise the suspicion that a portion of the claim or the entire claim is false. When a case is referred to the SIU, they begin investigating. Our firm often partners with members of the SIU to ensure that the investigation and any information obtained is done in a legal manner, as to protect the company as well as preserve the facts if a trial were to be held.
We provide personal attention and expertise in cases that are often the center of suspected fraud, such as:
- Auto theft and burns
- VIN switch
- Paper vehicles
- Passenger stuffing
- Staged accidents
- Examinations under oath (EUO)
- Sworn statements
Protect yourself and your SIU division with the help of our savvy and insightful law firm. We routinely assist our clients in their investigation of suspicious and fraudulent insurance claims by taking examinations under oath, identifying, locating and interviewing witnesses and by obtaining documents from various third parties and governmental entities.
