No, Britney Spears’ mega-hit from 2000 wasn’t about slip-and-fall insurance schemes, but it could have been!
Why? Because if a fraudster is successful in getting one or two of these types of claims paid, he or she typically won’t stop there. Criminals tend to stick with what works – and if something works, they do it over and over and over. Slip-and-fall rings can be found almost everywhere across the nation, with participants going from location to location to stage falls – “accidents” that are often “witnessed” by another member of the group, who is always more than eager to support the claimant’s version of events.
If your company is a member of the National Insurance Crime Bureau, our FraudSmart “Slip and Fall Claims” course can help your staff become better prepared to review, analyze and handle these claims. Participants will learn the five common indicators of questionable slip-and-fall claims and list the important elements that need to be documented and authenticated to determine the validity of the claim.
There is no additional cost to NICB members for this class. To schedule this or any other FraudSmart class at your company, log into the NICB Website at www.NICB.org with your username and password, select Training, then FraudSmart and contact the training director assigned to your state.
