Workers’ Compensation Fraud

Unfortunately, workers’ comp claimants often face many complications on the road to recovery. One serious problem that you may encounter after a workplace accident is an accusation of workers’ compensation fraud.

What Is Workers’ Compensation Fraud?

You may find yourself in serious legal and financial trouble if you have been accused of:

  • Malingering – This is the act of pretending to still be sick or injured in order to continue receiving benefits, even though you have recovered from your injuries.
  • Submitting false information – Your employer or insurance provider may believe that you are exaggerating your injuries or the treatments you need in order to receive more money, time off work, or prescription drugs.
  • Staging or fabricating an accident – Sometimes workers seeking benefits will try to pass off old injuries as ones that were sustained at work. Some will even go so far as deliberately injuring themselves in workplace “accidents.”

If you are accused of acts of fraud such as these, you could be facing more than the loss of your workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on your case, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or even a felony, potentially resulting in stiff fines, a criminal record, and possibly even jail time. You need the assistance of a qualified Iowa workers’ compensation fraud defense attorney.
