Facing a false injured worker claim as a California employer

Taking care of one's employees through appropriate training, well-documented contracts and various other means of good management is par for the course for employers throughout California. In addition, employers typically understand the need for workers' compensation insurance that provides benefits to injured employees to help cover medical costs and lost wages in the aftermath of workplace accidents. However, an employer may also face significant legal difficulty when a false injured worker claim is filed.

Although most employers would like to think the best of their workers, more than one has been deceived by fraudulent injury claims. Fraud is committed when a worker claims to have been injured on the job, when the injury actually occurred outside the workplace. Others have attempted to take unlawful advantage of the system by exaggerating the severity of their work accident injuries.

Regardless of the events leading to and following a workers' comp claim, any employer who suspects that a claim is without merit is entitled to investigate the situation to protect company interests. It may also help avoid potential increase of insurance premiums that could result in the future. Because such situations can be complicated, it is advisable to seek assistance from an experienced attorney who has successfully defended other employers in similar situations.
