Workers’ compensation insurance companies try to limit their liability as much as possible to keep a healthy bottom line. One way to do this is to accuse injured workers of fraud, thus denying or terminating a worker’s benefits.
Insurance fraud costs the insurance industry a lot of money. A simple Google search for the phrase “workers’ compensation fraud” yields several examples of people who tried to cheat the system. Unfortunately, many innocent individuals, people who truly deserve benefits, are wrongfully accused of insurance fraud each year.
