Worker’s Compensation Fraud
One of the most frequent crimes that plague the United States involved with elicit fraud – is worker’s compensation deception. This type of deception has cost the American people over $5 million dollars a year. Workers’ Compensation Fraud occurs when someone knowingly makes a false representation of a material fact to obtain or to deny workers’ compensation benefits or to avoid responsibility under the law.
SOME EXAMPLES OF WORKER’S COMPENSATION FRAUD

- Filing a claim for an injury that did not occur on or has no relation to the job
- Knowingly misrepresenting his / her physical condition to obtain benefits

Employees committing worker’s compensation fraud could face felony charges and could be required to pay back the full amount of money claimed.
