September 19, 2019

A Delaware woman has been indicted by a Sussex County Grand Jury for two counts of insurance fraud and one count of identity theft following an investigation by the Delaware Department of Insurance Fraud Prevention Unit.

Janet Lane, 59, formerly of Ocean View, Del., was indicted on September 9, 2019. Lane had been a passenger in a car that was struck in a motor vehicle accident in July 2015 and sustained injuries from the accident.

During the course of the claim process, Lane submitted a fraudulent wage and salary verification form to her insurance company, CSAA Insurance, utilizing her past employer’s information and forged signature. She falsely claimed that she was employed during the time of the July 2015 accident.

In addition, Lane submitted a fraudulent doctor’s work note to CSAA Insurance. Based upon the fraudulent documents, Lane received $15,488 for lost wages she was not entitled to receive from CSAA Insurance.
