When distracted driving triggers insurance fraud
A statewide public education campaign to address insurance fraud is tackling a new angle: how distracted driving increases fraudulent claims. The Pennsylvania Insurance Fraud Prevention Authority (IFPA) this month will address the connection in new broadcast radio and digital video messages, which are part of its broader “See How They Lie” campaign.
IFPA cites that insurers are seeing a rise in claims related to distracted driving, including a rise in suspicious claims that result from drivers trying to cover up the real cause of an accident. Its latest public awareness video, “Lying in Lansdowne,” depicts such a scenario – and the repercussions.
