An injured worker claim could be be an act of fraud

California employers are obligated to purchase insurance that provides benefits to injured employees who are hurt on the job. When a workers' compensation claim is successfully filed, an employee receives compensation that can help pay medical bills and replace lost wages. However, an injured worker claim sometimes turns out to be fraudulent, in which case an employer has the right to take legal action.

Sacks & Zolonz, LLP have successfully defended employers in cases where fraudulent workers have wound up in jail for their crimes. If you are a concerned employer who suspects that a worker's injury claim may have been falsified, please feel free to contact our office to discuss the issue. We have more than 40 years of experience fighting for justice on behalf of employers like you.

There are various ways that employees commit fraud with regard to filing an injury claim. Sometimes, they claim their injuries have occurred in the workplace when, in fact, it is later proved not to be the case. Others misrepresent the severity of their injuries in order to collect more benefits for their personal gain.

Filing an injured worker claim in a fraudulent manner is illegal and prosecutable by law. If you are a California employer with questions about the legal process or what your options are to resolve such an issue in the workplace, Sacks & Zolonz, LLP is prepared to assist you. We can analyze the worker's claim to search for evidence of fraud and provide legal guidance to help you protect your business interests.
