Preventing Workers' Compensation Abuse

April 25

Learn what you can do to prevent workers' compensation abuse and avoid litigation.

How prevalent is workers' compensation abuse in the United States? Even by the smallest estimates, workers' compensation abuse costs Americans $1 billion a year. What can employers and insurance companies do to prevent this problem? This topic helps employers and insurance carriers responsible for handling workers' compensation claims, to understand the scope of the problem, and to recognize fraudulent claims before they spiral out of control. In this material we will identify best practices for employers and insurance carriers to prevent abuse and identify strategies for managing the cost of potentially abusive claims. We will also discuss some of the legal tools available to employers and claims professionals in mitigating these risks including negotiation, accident investigation, and litigation.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to identify what workers' compensation abuse looks like.

- You will be able to review how to handle claims.

- You will be able to discuss claims with abuse potential.

- You will be able to describe surveillance.
