Phoenix Insurance Fraud Attorney

Insurance Fraud in the Arizona Revised Statutes

The crime of insurance fraud can be committed by an individual, an employer or an insurance company. Employers commit insurance fraud when they unlawfully deny employees the right to compensation for a work-related injury. Insurance companies commit the crime by refusing to provide any or adequate compensation to a customer who legally deserves the payment. As for individuals, they can be guilty of insurance fraud by falsifying their information and obtaining payment that they do not truly deserve.

Insurance Fraud Is a Class 6 Felony

Regarding individuals, insurance fraud is defined under A.R.S. §20-463 as presenting a statement containing false information regarding any aspect of their insurance claim in an attempt to avoid making a payment to their insurance, or to obtain payment for an invalid claim. According to A.R.S. §20-466.01, insurance fraud is a class 6 felony, which is punishable by six months of imprisonment.

The law also states that a person can still be convicted of such a crime even when they did so "without malice, fraudulent intent or bad faith." However, it must be proven beyond reasonable doubt that the alleged offender truly intended to commit the crime of insurance fraud in order for a conviction to be made.
