Injured on the Job
Gilbert, Blaszcyk & Milburn are a trusted law firm for many in the New York and Long Island area. We represent those who have been injured on the job and are seeking workers compensation.
Our lawyers can help monitor workers compensation fraud, which can be committed by doctors, employers, insurance companies, and claimant. Workers can claim they were injured on the job, but then, if proven out to be false, can be charged with fraud. The most common way employees commit fraud is by getting injured outside of work, but claiming your were hurt while working. Inflating or faking an injury is also considered a type of fraud, but so is failing to disclose about an injury. These are all areas to watch out for to ensure you get proper payment for your claim.
Employers can also commit fraud. This can be done a few ways. One of the more common methods is to under-report the payroll, this way the employer can lower their premiums, so if an injury does occur on the job, the employee could be entitled to less than their owed. Employers can also evade having workers compensation for their employees, which is illegal and required to have by law. In this scenario, workers are deceived into thinking they are covered, when in fact they are not. This can be a huge issue if a work injury occurs, as there won't be any money to pay.
