  • Intentionally delaying payments to workers or healthcare providers

Proving Insurer Fraud

Proving that a workers’ compensation insurer has engaged in fraud in the handling of your workers’ comp claim may require relying on evidence such as:

  • Your pay stubs and income statements, which can be used to calculate your correct average weekly wage
  • Check stubs or direct deposit statements of the disability benefits you received
  • Originals of evidence from the scene of the workplace accident, including accident scene photos and video or surveillance footage
  • Correspondence from the workers’ compensation insurer
  • Metadata from electronic records, which can show alterations to those records
  • Medical records from the treatment and rehabilitation of your work injury or occupational illness, along with independent medical expert testimony, which may establish if your treating workers’ comp provider made a medically unsound diagnosis
  • Witness testimony
