What Makes Up a Fraud Claim?
Fraud consists of many elements. First, there has to be a false representation made. Second, the person making that statement has to know that it is false or have a reckless disregard for its truth. Third, this statement must be made to induce another party into doing something. Finally, the other party must rely on this false statement and also incur actual damages. If all of these elements are met, then a fraud claim can be brought.
After years of defending those charged with fraud, we have come across many types of cases and know how to build a solid defense for all of them, including:
