Aim(s): Damage is known as a major risk to adult health in the world and is the most common cause of death. Fraud and scenes and fake accidents are a social disorder and a serious threat to the country. The aim of this study was to investigate the pattern of false accidents in Mazandaran Province Forensic Medical Center in 2011-2016.
Instruments & Methods: In this descriptive-analytical research, all available cases of false accidents in Mazandaran Province Forensic Medical Center during 2011-2016 were studied. The tool used in the research was a questionnaire prepared on the basis of patterns and components in the relevant files. Data were categorized and analyzed by SPSS 20 software using descriptive statistics.
Findings: Of the 79 cases reviewed, 94.9% were male, 50.6% were single and 82.2% had freelance job. The most common type of accidents was motorcycle collision with car (35.4%) and the most of the injured was motorcycle driver (30.4%). 58.2% of the studied cases lived outside the province, which 38.0% of them reported the traveling as the reason for being in the province.
Conclusion: In most cases, false accidents occur in the late hours of the night and the first hours of the day. Usually the vehicle has one or two occupants and the accident happens somewhere outside the city. Injuries are common to all occupants and in most cases are symmetric. All of these cases indicate that the reported accidents are fictitious. Most of the people surveyed also have freelance jobs.
