Forensic Services

Insurance fraud is one of the most costly white-collar crimes in the United States. Experts estimate that the national annual cost of insurance fraud is between $85 and $120 billion.  There has been an increasing trend in the submission of fraudulent and overstated loss claims to insurance carriers.
