The Effect of Opioid Prescriptions on Workers’ Compensation

The country’s opioid issue has been a top headline maker for the past few years and unfortunately continues to dominate the news as the problem continues in the United States. The effects have been felt throughout several industries, including workers’ compensation, which has seen some states respond to the opioid prescription epidemic with state legislation addressing the crisis.

Workers filing fraudulent claims often make social media mistakes

While many workplace injuries are valid, some workers may exaggerate or even concoct fake injuries to cheat the workers’ compensation system. Workers may be aided in creating falsified claims with the help of coworkers, doctors or even lawyers. Fraudulent workers’ compensation claims are especially common in California, where there is a no-fault system in place. Workers can make claims for medical expenses and even back-pay without proving evidence of an injury.
