A California construction worker filed a workers’ compensation claim for multiple injuries. During ICW Group’s fraud investigation efforts involving depositions and qualified medical exams, the claimant denied prior industrial and motor vehicle accident injuries. Unfortunately for him, his claims history was investigated, and records were subpoenaed, revealing that he lied about his eight prior workers’ compensation claims and three motor vehicle accident claims. This matter was referred to law enforcement for further investigation.
This investigation is an excellent example of how ICW Group helps its policyholders identify and fight fraud. Every workers’ compensation claim is automatically checked for fraud red flags within 24 hours of claim creation. Our fraud-fighting team of experts assigns three times the number of claims for investigation than the industry average, so your business is in good hands.
