One of the most common types of fraud being committed across the United States is worker's compensation fraud. This costs Americans $5 billion dollars a year. Workers involves labor compensation fraud when they are not able to present or manipulate information for them to acquire financial aid that they are not lawfully permitted to. In some instances the employee making the fraudulent claim is working in collaboration with a medical physician who submits false medical reports suggesting that the employee is not able to return to work and requires further on going treatment and possible rehabilitation. The doctors involve in the fraud by asking for bills on the insurance firm for the ongoing illness treatment of the worker. Another advantage to the employee is that in almost every case the employee is represented by a Union attorney who responds quickly.
