Lawyers for Fraud & Misrepresentation in Pennsylvania

If you or a loved one were a victim in a fraud case, you may be entitled to monetary recovery. While the criminal courts will most likely end up prosecuting the fraud and consequently securing restitution for the victim, this does not always cover certain damages that you, as the victim, have undergone. By contacting a Warminster civil litigation attorney, you can pursue your claims to the money you are due for, in some cases, medical expenses, lost income, and other forms of relief available.

What Constitutes Fraud in Pennsylvania?

According to Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes Title 18, Chapter 41, fraud is when one person intentionally makes a misleading or misrepresented material fact to another person. This then causes the victim to act in reliance on that misrepresentation and suffer legal harm or damage as a result.

The key elements of proving a case of fraud include:

  • Misrepresentation of a material fact
  • Awareness of the perpetrator of this misrepresentation or falsehood
  • Intent by the perpetrator to deceive the victim
  • Proven and reasonable reliance in the truth of the statement by the victim
  • Actual loss or damages suffered

In layman’s terms, fraud is an intentional deception that ends up taking away someone else’s money, property, or legal right. It is classified as a form of theft.

    Fraud may take a number of forms. Some common examples of fraud include:

    • Identity theft
    • Bankruptcy fraud
    • Mail fraud
    • Tax evasion
    • Counterfeiting
    • Embezzlement
    • Security fraud
    • Counterfeiting

    Punishments for fraud can vary defending on the amount of money or value defrauded, ranging from a summary offense to a first-degree felony. The statute of limitations for a fraud claim in Pennsylvania is two years. If you were a victim of fraud, it is important to reach out to a fraud attorney as soon as possible.

    What to Do if You Are a Victim of Fraud

    Fraud is a punishable crime. If you find yourself in a situation where someone stole your identity, embezzled you, or stole your credit card and used it without permission, call the police. Be prepared to offer up as much evidence, such as bank statements and other documents, as possible. That evidence will aid the prosecution in the criminal trial.

    If the fraudulent behavior ended up costing you damages, you are entitled to recovery for those damages according to Pennsylvania civil tort laws. It is important that you contact a Warminster fraud attorney to help you pursue your civil claims.
