Workers’ compensation is awarded to employees who have suffered injuries or illnesses that have made them incapable of performing their jobs. An employee typically makes untrue statements regarding their injuries or illness to receive worker’s compensation benefits by lying about the extent of their injuries or falsifying the situation surrounding an accident.
Common types of Workers’ Compensation Fraud:
- Exaggerating symptoms or severity of injury in an attempt to increase benefits
- Additional employment as a source of additional income while claiming to be incapacitated
