The fact that Frank Assouman was not even in his truck at the time it was hit in a Boca Raton parking lot did not stop him from filing more than $25,000 in false insurance claims.
The crash report and a witness statement taken at the time of the accident indicate that the West Palm Beach resident was not in his parked vehicle when it was struck by another driver. Damage to Assouman’s vehicle was estimated at $1,500.
Days later he sought medical care, including an MRI at Delray Diagnostics and other treatment obtained from Modern Medicine, Inc.
In addition to filing a claim for property damage, Assouman reportedly filed a $21,815 injury claim with State Farm and a $3,035 claim with his own carrier of Windhaven Insurance. Both claims were denied.
The Florida Division of Insurance Fraud filed a fraud charge against Assouman for less than $20,000.
