Talk to a workers compensation lawyer and you might be surprised to learn that workers compensation fraud is actually a multi-billion dollar problem. Across many states in the United States, state governments are seeking to implement tougher rules so as to ensure that they end this illegal practice. However, the more surprising thing you are likely to learn is that there are so many different forms of workers compensation fraud. The most well-known kind are those committed by everyday blue collared workers. Construction workers for example are a big source of false claims.
