Couple Charged in Fake Drowning

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 8-Jun-2011

Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers arrested a Stover, MO couple in Camden County in after reports say they filed a false report of a drowning incident on the Missouri River at Franklin Island in Howard County.

The couple, Robert T. Gabauer, 44, and Michelle L. Miesner, 43, both of Stover, were arrested for felony attempted commission of fraudulent insurance act and filing a false police report, reports say.

Reports also say that on May 7, the pair called the Missouri State Highway Patrol to report Gabauer had drowned while fishing on the Missouri River. EMS and the Howard County Sheriff’s Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol, as well as some volunteer fire personnel searched the waters for any sign of Gabauer’s body.

But after calling off the search in the evening and regrouping in the morning to continue the search, the police discovered apparent inconsistencies in Miesner’s story. The next evening, Gabauer was reportedly located in Camden County where both he and Miesner were taken into custody.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
