Recently, a chiropractor, a lawyer and two to other individuals pleaded guilty to mail fraud involving fraudulent car accident injury claims. The investigation of these particular individuals began after a former patient at Inova Fairfax Hospital complained about being contacted by an individual who knew the patient had been treated for injuries sustained in an accident.
The FBI then planted a phony accident report which was picked up by the ‘bait' and it was ‘game on.' The lawyer had hired a "runner" whose job it was to convince accident victims to sign up with that lawyer and then to go a particular chiropractor, who job it was to falsify medical records and
inflate the claim.
