I’m beginning to wonder why the practice of chiropractic is so replete with corruption.
A Twin Cities personal injury attorney admitted in federal court Monday to participating in a scheme to defraud auto insurance companies through bogus health care claims.
William Kyle Sutor III, a 37-year-old St. Louis Park lawyer, told U.S. Judge Nancy Brasel the scheme started with “runners” who brought him clients who had been victims of car accidents. The clients all had no-fault insurance policies, which, under Minnesota law, must provide a minimum of $20,000 medical benefit expenses.
On three separate occasions, Sutor worked with two chiropractors, unnamed in court documents, also in on the scheme. Sutor paid the runners $300 per client, and chiropractors paid between $1,000 and $1,500, Sutor said.
