Auto Fraud: Physician, heal thyself

An alleged hit-and-run accident left the claimant with reported injuries to his neck and back. The claimant – a chiropractor whose license had been revoked for failure to pay child support – was treated by his own clinic plus two others.

When the case was turned over to ISI’s Special Investigations Unit, they discovered he had been involved in another collision 10 months earlier, with additional alleged injuries and loss of income filed. When the claimant couldn’t provide any supporting documentation, the claim was settled for just over $3,000. Estimated savings: $22,000.
