Van Riper & Nies Law relies on open communication and aggressive representation in bringing justice to employees and employers accused of workers' compensation fraud.
Our trial attorneys represent employers and employees who have been arrested for workers’ compensation fraud.
In Florida, employers may be charged with committing workers' compensation fraud for not carrying workers’ compensation insurance.
Employees may be charged with committing workers’ compensation fraud for: 1) applying for and receiving workers’ compensation benefits for injuries that do not exist (faking or making up injuries), 2) applying for and receiving workers’ compensation benefits for injuries that actually occurred outside of work, 3) exaggerating the seriousness of an injury, 4) Materially lying to physicians about previous injuries, 5) receiving workers’ compensation benefits for the same injury from multiple employers, and others. In Florida, the punishment for committing worker's compensation fraud depends on the monetary loss suffered by the State of Florida and can be a 1st Degree Felony with a maximum sentence of 30 years.
