A significant amount of injuries and deaths are caused by slip and fall accidents in the United States. According to the National Safety Council, nearly 40,000 people died due to falls at home and work in 2019. Even with the severity of the problem, we should not dismiss the possibility that people still fake injuries for monetary gain.
In recent years, the number of fake slip and fall cases has increased significantly. There were about 6,500 “questionable” incidents reported in a single year. It is common for cons to fabricate slip and fall injuries to receive easy money. They essentially use the insurance policy of a homeowner or business as a “big pocket” from which to steal without being caught.
However, negative consequences do-follow. Premiums for insurance policies increase, which affects all of us. Actual slip and fall victims suffer because they are believed to be dishonest. The perception of doubt raised by false fall claims makes it difficult for legitimate injury victims to resolve their claims and lawsuits.
Businesses and areas around your home have a powerful tool to stop false claims in their tracks: Video monitoring with wireless security cameras.
