What is Workers Compensation Fraud?

Are you worried that filing for workers compensation may result in criminal fraud charges against you for filing a false claim?

Did you file the appropriate paperwork?

Did you get a thorough checkup by a medical professional after your accident? Did they clear you for work or tell you to rest?

Don’t worry! If you took the necessary steps to file a claim, you probably have nothing to worry about. Most people believe that workers compensation criminal fraud charges are common, but that is simply NOT true! Less than 1% of the injured workers who file a workers compensation claim actually get charged with criminal fraud.
