  • LIRR Retirees’ Fraud Case a Roadblock to Legitimate Disability Claims

    Many of you know that several retried LIRR workers and their doctors are facing federal criminal fraud charges in New York (NY) for conspiring to file and collect payments for false disability claims from the Railroad Retirement Board. Among other allegations, prosecutors are saying the former rail employees paid the physicians for bogus diagnoses of injuries and illnesses that, if real, would have forced the people into early retirement and cause lifetimes of pain and difficulties.

    As a FELA railroad injury lawyer who has represented railroaders with valid injury and disease claims since the early 1990s, and having consulted on RRB cases, I know that if the charges prove true, the scam will result in more than prison sentences and fines for the accused. The criminal fraud case will make it even more difficult for any engineer, trackman, brakeman, carman or conductor to receive deserved compensation when they really do get hurt or become sick because of the work they do. Fraudulent disability claims make life difficult for all rail workers.
