The costs to corporations and businesses for compensation of fraudulent or exaggerated claims of injury can be much substantial. Insurance policies and rates for businesses, especially within sectors of the workplace that are deemed to have a high potential risk factor for employees, are much higher than for businesses that do not face the same potential liabilities. For this reason, any fraudulent compensation claims not only pose a financial strain on employers for specific cases on an individual basis, but a ripple effect may also place an artificially inflated sense of risk and safety, giving insurance companies the leverage to consider higher rates for businesses based on false data. With that said, insurance policies that employers may offer their workers may reflect the result of the aforementioned falsified risks. It is not only the companies themselves that are affected by fraudulent claims or compensation The average employee may suffer from limited coverage due to the inflated costs on the employer. The investigative efforts of DBI can help provide businesses from becoming victims from deceitful employees.
