WORKER'S COMPENSATION FRAUD
Worker's Compensation Fraud is an underground economy that costs millions of dollars each year to the citizens and employers of California.
Here's a video where we discuss Worker's Comp Fraud in detail.
On July 15, 2013, the California State Insurance Commissioner awarded the Nevada County District Attorney’s Office $66,000 to help prevent and prosecute workers’ compensation fraud. The long term goal of the program is to develop a regional unit that will investigate fraud cases in Nevada County and neighboring counties.
D.A. Newell remarked; “Part of the focus is outreach and education to inform providers, employers and the public of the program, however the primary focus is to investigate and prosecute those that take advantage of the system, and hold them accountable.”
