States require employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance to cover an employee’s lost wages due to an injury on the job.
It’s a sad fact that to some unethical workers, workers’ compensation claims look like a ticket to getting paid for not working. Whether it’s exaggerating the extent of an injury or outright faking it, it’s illegal and costly to employers, insurers and society as a whole. It raises insurance costs for all businesses.
Check out this list of warning signs of workers’ compensation claim fraud. If you suspect fraud, it’s probably worth hiring a firm that conducts workers’ compensation claim investigations.
None of these warning signs in and of themselves can establish fraud.
