Workers' Compensation Fraud—Employee
California Workers' Compensation Benefits Fraud Lawyers
In California, workers' compensation fraud is a felony. If you are
convicted of committing fraud to receive workers' compensation benefits,
you can be fined up to $50,000 and sentenced to up to five years in prison.
As a convicted felon, you will not be able to own a firearm, serve in
the military, or gain acceptance into many educational programs. You may
also find it difficult to get a job with a felony conviction on your criminal record.
