Worst Cases

People who get injured on the job are supposed to file claims through worker’s compensation claims. Employers are legally obligated to provide worker’s compensation insurance at the workplace according to the California statute. Employees are allowed to use these benefits if the claim is approved. Generally, the system is followed and benefits are used accordingly. However, there are situations where someone tries to take advantage of the benefits. Here are a few examples:

  • A woman allegedly hurt her foot while at work. She filed a claim and it was approved. The injury was severe enough to prevent her from standing or walking for long amounts of time. She was caught on tape using the crutches and boot while she was at the doctor’s office. However, later in the day, she was also caught on camera walking without her crutches and holding her boot in her hand in attempts to hit someone.
  • A man injured his back, left ankle, and heel on the job. The claim was approved. The pain was so severe that it rendered him from working at all. However, he was caught on video effortlessly pushing his pickup truck after it stalled out.
  • A woman hurt her neck and shoulders at work. Her injury was so painful that she had to get routine shots to alleviate the pain. She was alleviated from all work duties. She was later caught riding in a rodeo competition on two different occasions after her date of injury.

People lie all the time and they take advantage of systems that good honest people need. Don’t get caught taken over by their lies. Call 310-216-7778 or click here to start a discussion with our professional attorneys at Sacks & Zolonz in Los Angeles today.
