Insurance Fraud & Special Investigations


LGWM’s Insurance Fraud/SIU Practice Group works closely with insurance carrier’s Special Investigative Units (SIU) to conduct thorough and complete investigations of first-party property claims including arson and theft. When an investigation raises questions about the validity of a claim, we conduct Examinations Under Oath (EUO) to uncover discrepancies in statements and reveal potential fraud. After completion of the claims investigation, we provide our clients with a detailed analysis of the investigation and a recommendation on whether the claims should be denied or is acceptable for coverage under the terms of the policy.

Our team has the experience to understand that SIU claims investigations and Examinations Under Oath (EUO) are very different from litigated cases. We are committed to treating insureds with respect and our recommendations to accept or deny claims are made fairly and impartially based on the evidence presented. Our comprehensive understanding of insurance policies and legal precedent help us protect our clients from claims of bad faith.
