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.

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."
