Truck Driver Ordered to Pay Back Benefits to Texas Mutual

March 31, 2010

Texas Mutual Insurance Company reported that a Travis County district court has sentenced Jason Whatley of Borger, Texas, on workers’ compensation fraud-related charges. The court ordered Whatley to pay a $500 fine and repay $13,488 in benefits to Texas Mutual.

Whatley reported a job-related injury while working as a driver for Frontier Fluid Service Inc. of Canadian, Texas. He claimed he was unable to work as a result of the injury, and Texas Mutual began paying income benefits to him.

Texas Mutual said it subsequently uncovered evidence that Whatley was working multiple jobs, including maintenance worker and oilfield pumper, while receiving income benefits.
