Common signs of workers' compensation fraud

Indeed, false claims do not outpace legitimate claims, but because of the proliferation of bogus claims, insurance costs are bound to increase for employers and through throughout the industry.

She was turning onto a street from the garage when her SUV was hit by another car.

Man found guilty for fraudulent workers' compensation claims

A man recently pleaded guilty to fraudulent workers' compensation claims in court when he was caught working while receiving benefits.
