Insurance fraud represents 10% to 15% of the total annual compensation paid out for material damages. These mainly concern the verified cases of fraudulent claims. Insurance fraud is therefore dealt with seriously and is a criminal offense.
The issue of insurance fraud is global, with an annual cost of billions of euros. Apart from damaging the insurance companies themselves, which will have to pay out money for fraudulent claims, such claims also harm the clients, who will have to pay higher fees in the future in order to balance out the costs ensued.
On top of that, the State can also be harmed through lost taxes, as well as the mobilisation of the relevant authorities, thus wasting public as well as private resources.
Cases involving criminal activity usually have to do with supposed injuries or death, "staged" car accidents, employee compensation for workplace accidents, health insurance and medicinal care as well as claims on property which has been destroyed, usually as a result of fire.
There are therefore no specific categories harmed by illegal activity, but this crime is spread throughout the services offered by the insurance sector.
