The Privacy Dangers in Workers’ Comp

Arthur Kravitz, Shareholder in Stark & Stark’s Workers’ Compensation Group, was quoted in the April 6, 2012 Lawyers.com article, The Privacy Dangers in Workers’ Comp. The article discusses the fact that when someone is injured at work, their privacy, in relation to their medical history and personal life, is often times invaded by insurance companies looking for evidence that can be used to deny their workers’ compensation claim.

Mr. Kravitz states, “What we’re seeing now are requests to rifle through records going back 10 or 20 years that often have no relevance to the claim. The second major privacy issue with workers’ compensation is the increasing use of social networks to investigate claimants. In some cases, insurers are even asking for the passwords to their claimants’ private Facebook accounts.”
