Galloway New Orleans Attorneys Successfully Defend a Louisiana Worker’s Comp Claim By Proving Fraud

New Orleans attorneys Heather Angelico and Francis Waguespack successfully defended against a Louisiana workers’ compensation claim by establishing that the injured worker committed fraud and had, therefore, forfeited all rights to benefits. Records discovered from Venmo, PayPal, and Cash App showed that the injured worker was actually self-employed and earning wages during the period benefits were paid, despite her sworn testimony that she was not employed or earning any money. A settlement was negotiated prior to trial, and the worker is now under a court order to repay the employer all indemnity benefits she fraudulently received.
