Wall Street's Next Bad Move...Litigation Loans?

Wednesday, June 28, 10:00 am PT, 12:00 pm CT, 1:00 pm ET  
Register for this webinar

Presented by Adam J. Brand, Esq, Attorney, Brand & Tapply, LLC

This session will introduce attendees to the emergence of “litigation loans” and their growing impact on third-party bodily injury insurance claims.  As their name suggests, litigation loans are loans issued by third parties to bodily injury claimants or their attorneys, which are tied to the outcome of an individual personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit.  

In theory, the loans are designed to ease the financial burden of a claimant (or their counsel) until the subject claim is settled; however, in reality these loans are often issued without regard to the ability of the recipient to make payments or the value of the underlying claim and have little to no stipulations on their usage.  Further, the loans serve to prolong the claims settlement process, encourage pursuit of frivolous or fraudulent claims, and contribute to starkly differing claim valuations by insurers and claimants, likely leading to an increase in claims which go to litigation, and costs for claims departments.  



Vehicle Location Data for SIU: Using "Where" Data for Investigations
Wednesday, July 26, 11:00 am PT, 1:00 pm CT, 2:00 pm ET
Register for this webinar
Presented by Alex Young, Vice President and General Manager, Insurance, DRN 
Dave Rivera, Product Manager, DRN 

“Where” data or location data is changing how people and companies do business. For SIUs, that “where” data in the form of vehicle location data is delivering on the promise to fight fraud. How? By providing proof where other data falls short. Vehicle location data provides the answers and evidence to SIU questions like: Does a person live where they say they live? Was there damage to a vehicle before the claim? Learn where vehicle location data comes from, how it differs from other data types and why policyholders don’t have to opt in. Walk through detailed examples of the top five ways SIUs use vehicle location data including: Identify Garaging Fraud, Detecting Pre-Existing Damage, Confirming Alibis, Uncovering PIP Fraud and Workers Comp Investigations. Get perspective and statistics on how carriers are using vehicle location data and analytics, and understand how the data fits within the SIU investigative process. 

This webinar is proudly sponsored by DRN.

Register for this webinar
Presented by Frank Goldstein, Founding Partner, Goldstein Law Group,
Carol LaDuke, SIU Litigation Manager, Allstate Insurance Company

Staged Accidents! Medical clinics employing Runners to recruit "patients!" Runners paying off "patients," to stage accidents, fake injuries and treatment and to recruit other criminal minds! Have you ever wondered how an insurance fraud-based, organized crime ring does it? After travelling the United States in 2014 and 2015, and interviewing and deposing dozens of imprisoned clinic owners, runners and "patients," I was able to get inside the minds of these criminals, and learn how they organized and pulled off one of biggest insurance scams in automobile insurance history.  

We are going to set the stage for one of the largest criminal enterprises in Florida's history and describe the key players involved in defrauding every major automobile insurer in Florida; We will chronicle how the medical clinics were set up as staged accident and fake treatment mills, used to bilk insurers and recount, in great detail, the dozens of interviews with the fake clinic owners, runners, and "patients", who describe how the whole scheme worked. We will paint a picture as to how the little black books kept by the clinic owners, runners and "patients" were used to identify the "easy insurer" targets; used to set up and organize the staged accidents; used to track clinic visits; and used to keep track of payoffs to runners and "patients". We will detail how over 100 crime figures were caught and prosecuted both civilly and criminally and provide information and skills that attendees can use first thing "Monday Morning."

Presented by Joe Stephenson, Managing Director of SIU, Hagerty Insurance

Many of you have heard of the deep web, and some of you may have even used it, possibly unknowingly.But there is a difference between the deep web and the dark web, and they are not the same. In this presentation we will discuss the differences between the surface web (what we use every day), the deep web, and the dark web and what information can be found there. We will review how you can access it, what tools you will need, how "dangerous" it really is, and more importantly, what benefit does it have to insurance fraud investigations.
