For many injured employees in West Virginia (WV), workers' compensation insurance provides a way for them to recover successfully from a workplace accident without too much harm on their finances. However, some employees are committing workers' compensation fraud in WV and end up significantly harming the businesses for which they work. In fact, an estimated 10 percent of insurance claims are suspected to be fraudulent, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). Thus, as a business owner, it is imperative that you know the warning signs of workers' compensation abuse in WV and consult an attorney regarding suspected fraudulent activities to protect your business from employees who might be taking advantage of the system.
