Workers Compensation Fraud Cases

Workers’ Compensation Fraud costs employers billions of dollars each year. Workers comp fraud occurs when an employee claims an injury he or she does not have or exaggerates the extent of their injury in order to file a workers compensation claim. This can allow the worker to claim and receive workers compensation insurance that they are not entitled to.

Business owners, insurance agents, HR managers and others responsible for employees conduct workers comp investigations to gain a thorough understanding of how and why the injury occurred and to ensure each of the workers filing a worker’s comp claim are entitled to the compensation they receive. Thorough, complete workers comp investigations ensure that funds are paid for legitimate claims and reduces the loss of manpower and payments associated with illegitimate workers comp claims.

Hunt Investigative Group Associate Investigators provide the following services to uncover workers compensation insurance fraud:

  • Surveillance. Investigators may use audio, video, and other types of surveillance to determine whether an individual worker is really as injured as they seem.
  • Interviews and research. Workers compensation investigators may interview colleagues, friends, family, trying to find out how extensive the worker’s injuries are.
  • Background checks and traditional investigative techniques. A worker’s compensation investigator may check medical records, and other records to determine whether a worker is truly injured. They may also run background checks to see whether a worker has filed numerous compensation claims in the past or has been convicted of workers compensation fraud in the past.
  • Evidence gathering. Workers compensation investigators can gather evidence if they uncover workers compensation insurance fraud. This can help employers and businesses prosecute fraud and cut off workers compensation claims that are not legitimate.
  • Underpaid workers investigation. Workers compensation investigators can also help workers who are not getting adequate insurance money. If a company or insurance company is not paying workers comp to a genuinely injured worker, a private investigator can gather evidence about the company or insurance company in question. This can help a genuinely injured worker get their money through the court system
