Workers Comp Fraud

In California, workers' compensation fraud is a felony and penalties are severe. If you are convicted of committing fraud to receive workers' compensation benefits you can be fined up to $50,000 and sentenced to up to five years in prison.

If you have been charged or are  under investigation for  workers' comp fraud, it is essential to speak to a competent attorney who is experienced in workers' compensation benefits fraud defense.

Types of Workers Comp Fraud

  • Receiving workers' compensation benefits for a non-existent injury (false injury)
  • Claiming workers' compensation benefits for injuries sustained outside of the workplace
  • Exaggerating the nature and extent of your work-related injuries
  • Receiving workers' compensation benefits from more than one employer for the same injury
  • Failing to disclose a non-work-related injury that contributed to the work-related injury
