Arguing lack of intent

When making an insurance claim, you have the responsibility to provide certain information about the incident. You may have unintentionally provided false or inaccurate information. As a result, this might lead to you being accused of trying to commit insurance fraud. However, it is necessary for intent to be present if it is to be regarded as a criminal act. Therefore, if you can show that your actions were an honest mistake, it is likely that you will have your charges dismissed.

Arguing for a legitimate loss

You may want to admit that you did overexaggerate the losses you experienced in a particular claim. However, you could also argue that you did experience legitimate losses and that these should be covered.
