DEFINITION OF "AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE FRAUD" IN NEVADA

Car insurance fraud is the act of making a false claim in an effort to get insurance money you are not eligible for in Nevada.

During times of recession, factors such as high gasoline costs, unemployment, and shopper's remorse propel people to attempt to wrongly collect on auto insurance for quick money in Nevada. Examples of auto insurance fraud in Nevada include:

• Deliberately exaggerating the cost to repair a car,

• Deliberately abandoning a car and lying that it was stolen ("owner give-ups"),

• Deliberately damaging a car and lying that it was an accident,

• Deliberately lying on a car insurance application, or

• Lying that you sustained injuries from a car accident

Note that defendants who set fire to their cars may also face charges for the Nevada crime of arson. Learn more in our article: http://www.shouselaw.com/nevada/arson.html.
