Insurance companies also try to deny workers’ compensation claims alleging an injured worker misrepresented something on an employment application. The law is that it must be a significant misrepresentation that they relied on and there has to be a relationship between the misrepresentation and the injury. So, for example, if you have a bad back and you failed to disclose your bad back on your application and then broke your foot at work, it would not matter. However, if you injured your back, it could bar you from receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
