Auto Insurance Fraud Unit (AIFU)

The Auto Insurance Fraud Unit (“AIFU”) was established by Executive Order in September 2001, designating the Attorney General as the Special Prosecutor to investigate and prosecute criminal acts relating to the submission of fraudulent motor vehicle insurance claims.   AIFU combats fraud and abuse under the no-fault system, which governs the provision of medical care to people injured in car accidents, and other types of motor vehicle insurance fraud.  Since January of 2002, AIFU has brought felony charges against over 450 defendants, many of whom were involved in organized conspiracies, including doctors, lawyers, healthcare providers, steerers, lay owners of medical facilities, insurance brokers, participants in staged accidents, and hospital employees.
