Regarding the Problem of Insurance Fraud

Automobile insurance fraud is the biggest and fastest growing segment of insurance fraud and contributes substantially to the high cost of automobile insurance. Health insurance fraudulent activities account for billions of dollars annually in added healthcare costs nationally." (California Insurance Code Section 1871.) Clients facing a continuous stream of unmeritorious claims turn to Toschi Collins Doyle & Houvener for guidance to implement defense strategies to stop the conduct and to recoup their losses. Typically the first victim of healthcare fraud is the patient. Patients are mislead about the state of their health so that useless medical procedures can be performed on them. Multiple false claims submissions can be daunting. We assist clients to identify and resist false claims while ensuring the clients comply with all applicable regulations. Doctors that treat plaintiffs on a “lien” have financial incentives to wrongly blame our clients for something they did not do. We expose these doctors, show their bias, and get the jury to properly assess their lack of credibility.
