Florida--Home of Sun, Sand, and More Staged Car Accidents Than Anywhere Else in America

An interesting article from the Palm Beach Post came our way this morning via reader Ted Cossette. The title?

"Florida leads U.S. in faked car accidents."

According to the piece, Florida "now ranks first in the nation in questionable insurance claims for what appear to be staged accidents, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The number of cases grew 77 percent in the first half of 2010 compared with the same period in 2009."


It seems that Florida's no-fault insurance law, adopted in the 1970s, have been exploited by scam artists--in many cases, professionals--which added roughly $50 per car in higher insurance premiums. (The Post says a single accident with two cars carrying four passengers each can cost insurers $80,000.)

Bob Hartwig, president of the Insurance Information Institute, expects that figure to rise to $83 per car in 2011 if the rampant fraud is not brought under control.

Of course, for all your legitimate car accident injury needs, legal assistance is readily available:
