Description

The story investigates automobile insurance fraud in both small town and large cities around the country. The show set up accident scenes where our unharmed "victims" were solicited and taken to doctors and lawyers who encouraged them to file false injury claims. The demand for "accident victims" is a necessary element in this type of scheme, and it is being met by some doctors, lawyers and hustlers who deliberately cause collisions with innocent motorists.
