Insurance fraud brings enormous financial loss to insurance companies every year. Insurtech can benefit both insurers and customers by detecting and preventing fraud. Zimlon looks at 5 such disruptive startups changing the landscape of auto claims insurance.


Experts say that more than 20% of bodily injury claims and 10% of vehicle damage claims as a result of car accidents are fraudulent. Data science platforms and software made it possible to detect fraudulent activity, suspicious links, and subtle behavior patterns using multiple techniques. Besides, AI can also help cut the lifecycle of a claim by 20% by automating some systems. By reducing claim cycle time fraudulent claims are limited and client retention increases. Especially in the case of straightforward cases, insurers should use an analytics-driven approach to claims handling and fully automate the claims handling processes. Customers are choosing digital channels, and technologies, as reflected in a survey by Accenture, 74% of them would like to interact with modern technology and rely on the computer-generated system for insurance advice.
