Am I Going To Commit Fraud If I File a Workers Compensation Claim?
Did you really suffer from an injury while you were working?
Was your workplace found at fault for your accident?
Do you have witnesses that can testify in your favor?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, then you probably have nothing to worry about! If you want to avoid any chance of workers compensation fraud down the road, however, you may need to find an attorney who’s an expert in this area of law.
According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau, workers’ compensation fraud amounts to $7.2 billion per year across the United States, and it’s the fastest growing segment of insurance fraud.
There are three types of workers compensation fraud including:
- Workers’ Compensation Claimant Fraud – When an individual collects when they’re not actually injured.
- Workers’ Compensation Provider Fraud – When your healthcare provider advises you to unnecessary treatments for their sole benefit of profiting off increased payments.
- Workers’ Compensation Premium Fraud – When an employer fails to disclose their true operations for a cheaper workers compensation premium.
