Five men in New York have now been caught as the ring leaders of a federal indictment and insurance fraud in New York. These men recruited individuals to stage “slip-and-fall accidents” in order to fake injuries. The injuries then led to legal and medical appointments with enlisted doctors, lawyers, and finance companies who followed along with the con. Countless unnecessary procedures were done, racking up medical bills for insurance companies to pay. Peter Kalkanis, the leader of this scam, would coach plaintiffs on how to fake their injuries convincingly. The State has since revoked his license.
At Medical Consultants Network, we believe in the power of a second look. Our providers across the country complete examinations on claimants and injured parties, many with disabilities or work-related injuries. Some injuries are severe, some examinees recover after months of treatment, and some situations are quickly resolved. It’s the power of the second look that helps our providers make unbiased observations, conclusions, and recommendations on our claimants’ conditions and prognoses, and our staff to apply high standards at each step of the process to deliver evidence-based reports.
