Woman Arrested on Workers’ Comp Fraud Charges

February 24, 2003

Kathryn Marie Corso, 53, was arrested at her residence and charged with two felony counts of insurance fraud, one count of grand theft and one count of perjury.

Investigators reported that Corso filed a workers’ compensation claim with the American Protection Insurance Company for shoulder, wrist and hand injuries which she claimed prevented her from performing self-grooming functions. Following an investigation, Corso was videotaped performing physical activities beyond her medical restrictions. Material misrepresentations were allegedly made to the insurance company and medical doctors by Corso, about her ability to perform various activities. American Protection Insurance Company deposed Corso’s treating doctor and qualified medical examiner after they had a chance to evaluate Corso’s true physical abilities. Both medical doctors indicated that Corso exaggerated her limitations and changed their opinions as to her disability.

American Protection Insurance Company paid $36,000 on this claim.
