Sussex County Woman Indicted for Insurance Fraud

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- A Sussex County grand jury this week indicted a 59-year-old woman for two counts of insurance fraud and one count of identity theft following an investigation by the Delaware Department of Insurance Fraud Prevention Unit. 

Authorities said that Janet Lane, formerly of Ocean View, Del., had been a passenger in a car that was struck in a motor vehicle accident in July 2015. 

Lane sustained injuries from the accident, according to investigators. They said that 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. Investigators said Lane claimed that she was employed during the time of the July 2015 accident.  However, Lane was not employed at the time of the accident, invesatigators said. They said that also Lane submitted a fraudulent doctor’s work note to CSAA Insurance. 

Authorities said that based upon the fraudulent documents, Lane received $15,488 for lost wages she was not entitled to receive from CSAA Insurance.

There is no word yet on a trial date for Lane on the charges.
