Carpenter Sentenced for Workers’ Compensation Fraud in Texas

March 13, 2008

Texas Mutual Insurance Company reported that a Travis County court sentenced Donald Miller of Yoakum on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges. Miller received one year of probation and was ordered to pay $2,132 in restitution to Texas Mutual, plus a $500 fine, the company said.

Miller reported a job-related injury while working as a carpenter for Orr & Zinke General Contractors, headquartered in Yoakum. He claimed he was unable to work as a result of the injuries, and Texas Mutual began paying him income benefits.

However, an investigation by Texas Mutual found evidence that Miller was working as a self-employed contractor remodeling a private residence while receiving income benefits.
