California-based IHI Insurance Services announced another fraud conviction in a workers’ compensation claim resulting in $12,224 in restitution, 90 days in jail, and three years of formal probation.
This award followed the guilty plea of a workers’ comp claimant on one count of insurance fraud, in violation of Insurance Code 1871.4(a) (1), for making false or fraudulent written or oral statements.
IHI Insurance Services, adjusting a workers’ comp claim on behalf
of the California Insurance Guarantee Association (CIGA), reportedly played a critical role in the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s investigation and plea bargain by Santa Barbara resident Leopoldo Navarro, 39, a former employee of McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream.
Navarro, who pleaded guilty to insurance fraud, had alleged that he was disabled from work at McConnell Fine Ice Cream while at the same time working for another employer.
