Frequently asked questions.

What type of insurance fraud defence lawyer do I need?

The type of insurance fraud defence lawyer you need depends on the fraud allegations made against you. For example, if you are accused of motor insurance fraud, then you need a car insurance solicitor to represent you.

What sentence could I face for insurance fraud?

Sentences for insurance fraud vary depending on the severity of the crime and the harm caused to victims. If you’re found guilty when acting alone, sentences can range from a substantial financial penalty to community service or imprisonment.

If you’re charged with leading a criminal gang that targets insurance firms for false payouts, lengthier custodial sentences are usually imposed.

Can I reduce my sentence if I plead guilty to insurance fraud?

A guilty plea can reduce your sentence for insurance fraud by up to a third. The length by which a sentence is reduced depends on how soon you enter a guilty plea. The later you plead guilty as your case progresses, the smaller the sentence reduction.

Will I get a criminal record if convicted of insurance fraud?

Yes. Details of your conviction will be logged with either the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) – formerly known as the CRB (Criminal Record Bureau), or the Police National Computer (PNC), or both. This information will be accessible by current or future employers.
