Don't let staged car accidents make you twice a victim

Faking a car accident is a swindle that has existed for decades. One or more persons stage a car accident to bilk insurance companies out of money. In many cases, these staged car accidents happen between parties who are all in on it, but sometimes they can involve innocent motorists as well.

If luck is on their side, victims of staging only suffer car damage and costly insurance premiums, but if their luck has run out, they could suffer serious injuries or death. Florida has made the news several times for its staged car accident problem. Just last month, the Palm Beach Post featured a report about a man who has repeatedly engaged in staging crashes.

Even worse, victims of these scams are not aware that they have been targeted in a fraudulent scheme. Perpetrators of staged car accidents know how to make it look like the other party was at fault. They use a variety of techniques to cause the accident, fake an injury and leave victims feeling bad about having harmed another person.

We want you to be aware of these scams so that you do not become victimized two times. You are definitely a victim once if you were injured in such an accident and you are a victim twice because you were blatantly swindled.

If you have been in an accident that appears to be your fault, we urge you to take a close look at the incident. Think back on your actions and the actions of the other car's driver. If you feel even a moment of doubt about your guilt, please consider contacting a personal injury lawyer for help in proving your innocence. More importantly, legal assistance can help you hold the swindler to account.
