Fraud: Affecting more than your wallet
Types of insurance fraud that increase your premiums include exaggerated injuries and inflated medical bills. The Insurance Bureau of Canada estimates 10-15% of your premium goes toward fraudulent claims – costing Canadian insurers and policyholders 3 billion dollars each year.
Beyond financial harm is the considerable risk of injury to innocent victims in staged accidents.
