    It’s evident that there are problems on both sides of the fence. What the Times articles overlook, though, is the other victim: The employer. Whether there’s a fraudulent Workers Comp claim–or a fraudulent rejection of a claim–the employer always loses. Whoever the legal decision, the employer still gets stuck with inflated reserves the insurance company sets aside to cover the costs of the case. These reserves are estimated by the insurance companies to their own benefit, not the workers or the employers. And even if the claim is ultimately judged to be fraudulent, the insurance company usually doesn’t release those funds again unless forced to. So it’s the employer who gets hit with overcharges. It takes expert help to get refunds for workers compensation overcharges. And most employers never get that help. Mordechai (Morty) Schiller Compensation Refund Co., Brooklyn, NY
