Origin and Cause’s Annual National Tour is back! This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be hosting the event virtually.
History has shown that in times of economic hardship and high unemployment, instances of insurance fraud increase dramatically, and the current global recession is no exception. Our own observations in the field and conversations with insurers support this narrative. We have seen an increasing number of suspicious claims in the past several months that represent a growing problem for insurers.
Accordingly, this year’s National Tour will focus on the investigation of suspicious claims involving Break & Enters, Water, Structure Fires, Vehicles and Structural Damage. We’ll be covering critical steps in the investigative process as well as tips to help adjusters, lawyers and risk managers identify and manage insurance fraud.
