Los Angeles Workers' Comp Fraud
Because workers' compensation is a no-fault system (no negligence or error needs to be shown to collect compensation), it is vulnerable to fraud, with some of the most common examples, including:
- Inflated injury claims - An injured worker claims that the injuries suffered are worse than they really are.
- False injury claims - A worker claims injuries that are nonexistent.
- Complex schemes - Doctors, lawyers and other professionals work in concert in elaborate schemes to gain compensation from the workers' compensation system.
- Premium fraud - An employer underreports premiums owed to their workers' compensation insurance carrier or classifies employees improperly in order to save costs.
The government is prosecuting workers' compensation insurance fraud aggressively. It is essential to work with a law firm that has experience with this type of case. General criminal defense does not prepare a lawyer for the complications and nuances inherent in this highly specified area of criminal law. Founding attorney Tracy Green has more than 20 years of experience defending physicians and other professionals against charges of this kind.
