Casualty fraud almost triples in five years

20 Apr 2016

Organised casualty fraud claims saw a significant spike from 2010 to 2014 as the government tightened up on whiplash and motor fraud.

Research showed instances of casualty claims rose from 7,403 in 2010 to almost 20,000 in 2014 with the rise in fraudulent claims supported by several economic factors including increased migration, improving technology and medical science and the rise in retirement age.

Technology was also identified as a key catalyst of future claims, both commercially and domestically, with projections suggesting there will be 26 billion connected devices by 2020.
