September 26, 2104. Command Investigations, Frank Winston Crum Insurance Company and Broadspire announce the arrest of Jose Delvalle for Insurance Fraud. This arrest is a result of Command’s SIU & Anti-Fraud Programming provided to Frank Winston Crum Insurance.
During the evaluation of this claim, Command’s SIU department worked closely with the adjusters at Broadspire and identified possible fraud and material misrepresentation on this claim. Delvalle exaggerated his injuries for the purpose of financial gain.
With a shoulder and rotator cuff injury, Delvalle was placed on a no work status. Command obtained several days of video documenting Delvalle playing in baseball games to include such activities as throwing a baseball, swinging a weighted bat, hitting, running, catching, throwing overhand and utilizing both arms over his head numerous times.
