Murray Wallace, President of Granite Global Solutions, which includes investigations, accident reconstruction and disability assessment divisions, has supported the Ontario budget announcement to increase efforts to crack down on auto insurance fraud and to lower the cost of auto claims.

“Each of our operations works for insurance companies and their customers, to provide independent evidence on treatment plans for injured parties, in reconstructing accident scenes or in investigating suspicious claims. These services provide legitimate outcomes for insured drivers, while protecting against fraud and have saved the insurance community millions of dollars each year. We will increase our efforts to support the industry, regulators and consumers to seek out and eradicate fraud, whether by individuals or by unethical providers of service to insurance consumers.

“We will also support any efforts by the insurance industry to enlist the help of consumers in identifying possible frauds.  This will help reduce insurance costs and create a better market place for us all”, said Wallace, who has worked in the industry for many years, first as a regulator, then CEO of an auto insurance utility, and the CEO of a private insurer.
