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:

  1. Workers’ Compensation Claimant Fraud – When an individual collects when they’re not actually injured.
  2. Workers’ Compensation Provider Fraud – When your healthcare provider advises you to unnecessary treatments for their sole benefit of profiting off increased payments.
  3. Workers’ Compensation Premium Fraud – When an employer fails to disclose their true operations for a cheaper workers compensation premium.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"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."
