In his Insurance Fraud column, Evan H. Krinick, a partner with Rivkin Radler, writes: It has been a little over one year since federal prosecutors first charged 11 individuals in connection with what they alleged was a "massive" $1 billion disability insurance fraud scheme involving as many as 1,500 retired employees of the Long Island Rail Road. Although some defense lawyers suggested that the claims would not withstand scrutiny, the events since the first indictments make it clear that there certainly has been more than a minimal amount of disability insurance fraud involving LIRR retirees.
