If you are considering making a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, it is critical that you tell the truth in connection with your injury claims. The insurance company is looking for a reason to deny your case and your benefits. Don’t give them a reason! Do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company without conferring with an experienced workers compensation attorney. Many times an injured worker is confused and overwhelmed by the process and may inadvertently make a misstatement that can be used against them later.
Fraud is not limited to just injured workers. Employers in the State of Florida have also been charged and convicted of Fraud for not appropriately carrying and paying for workers compensation insurance. Recent examples of employer arrests are:
