Woman Commits Insurance Fraud From Ambulance

A Philadelphia woman was arrested last week in a very unusual case of insurance fraud. She wrecked her car and did not have comprehensive or collision insurance. Although injured, the woman called her agent from her gurney, en route to the hospital, to increase her coverage.

In an attempt to get her insurance company to pay for the damages to her car, she reported a claim shortly after the incident. The woman lied about when the accident occurred, claiming it was after she obtained the additional coverage. The story didn’t fly and the woman was arrested and charged with one count of insurance fraud and one count of “attempt to commit theft by deception”. She was released on $10,000 bail.

Repairs after an auto accident can be expensive; call Allied Brokers today to review your policy and fix any gaps in your coverage.
