With workers' comp claims up 18 percent in 2013 as compared to 2012, North Carolina officials are assuring state businesses that they take seriously concerns about "fraud" during the claims process.

The executive secretary of the North Carolina Industrial Commission, which oversees the state's workers' comp system, told the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce in April that the commission was dedicating 10 percent of its staff to compliance issues, as compared to the usual two percent.

This new focus on compliance and "fraud prevention" only re-emphasizes the importance of having an experienced, proven, trusted workers' compensation lawyer on your side during your claim.
