The Role of Victims in Criminal Investigations and Prosecutions
The Right of the Victim to Assist the Prosecutor
Insurance fraud is a major component of white-collar crime. It is slowly becoming a more significant component of the law-enforcement agenda. The insurance industry plays a leading role in assisting prosecutors in the investigation and prosecution of insurance fraud. The industry has been compelled to do so by statutes enacted by most states. Insurers help prosecutors establish criminal cases involving health care providers, lawyers, bogus claimants, arsonists, and a vast array of participants in infinite number of schemes to defraud insurance companies and their customers.
