Some of the best personal injury lawyers would agree that Los Angeles is indeed the place that witnesses the most number of staged car crashes in the world. The county has now been offered a fresh grant worth $6.9 million for ridding itself of this dubious honor as the capital of fraudulent accident cases that occur in the state of the California.

The amount provided by means of the grant would use for carrying out a clamp down on the fraud rings of car insurance constituting medical professors such as physicians and doctors who carry out fake diagnosis of injuries and for accident lawyers who indulge in filing of fake claims as well as middlemen who find cars for crashing and lastly, fake victims who are recruited for participating in these falsely enacted crashes.
According to official reports, auto insurance related frauds adds up to $200 to about $300 in premiums for drivers from Los Angeles, every year. The way in which these cases work is pretty intriguing. First, the criminals set their eyes on a vehicle. One car is set to move ahead of the victim, while another swoops right ahead of the vehicle of an accomplice and slams the brakes. This immediately results in the victim to ram his car into the car in front! Oftentimes, these criminal enterprises will also have additional accomplices in and around so that they could pose as witnesses.
This is just pathetic and this stems from having a pathetic school system and a weak economy. LA is a bankrupt city and it is soon becoming the next Greece or Detroit. It is being ran into the ground by tax and spend politicians. This is a morally bankrupt metropolis it seems.
Last year, almost 43% of the total number of fraud claims registered in California was reported from Los Angeles alone and it amounted to 7,700 cases! According to the commissioner of the California Department of Insurance, Dave Jones, $2.3 million from the grant amount will be targeted towards organized fraud for auto insurance claims and the balance would be for combating the crime in general.
