The Sacramento Bee - One surveillance video showed former California Highway Patrol officer Tony Yao driving a stake into the ground to hold up a banner for a San Francisco 49ers playoff game in January 2012. Others played in Sacramento Superior Court in Yao’s workers’ compensation fraud trial last month showed him carrying shopping bags, helping walk a bike and apparently disassembling a baby carriage. These images contrasted with others in the same time frame of Yao the days he showed up at the doctor’s office to get treatment for the back he said he injured in May 2011 while on the job for the CHP, pulling a chain to move a target.

Insurance Networking News - Financial losses due to insurance fraud cost U.S. insurers at least $80 billion a year, according to the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud, an association of industry, government and consumer organizations. The human cost, in terms of suffering and loss of life, is sky high as well. In an effort to dramatize the scope and depth of the problem, the coalition has singled out what it dubs the worst instances of insurance fraud in 2014. While these seven cases may not be the biggest in terms of total dollars involved, they are remarkable for the brazenness of the crimes and the viciousness of the perpetrators.

NBC News - Toyota is recalling 52,000 Avalon sedans because of a wiring problem that could cause a fire. The recall affects Avalons from the 2011 and 2012 model years. Toyota says cargo in the trunk could move the wires connected to the audio system subwoofer. If the wires contact the metal frame of the subwoofer, they could short circuit and cause the subwoofer to overheat. That increases the risk of a fire. Toyota says no injuries or fires have been linked to the problem, but it has received two reports of overheating.

KRQE - A New Mexico lawmaker has introduced a bill to reduce workers’ compensation in cases when an employee’s death or injury results from being drunk or high on the job. Republican Rep. Dennis Roch of Logan said being under the influence on the job puts lives at risk and the legislation would help protect workers and hold violators accountable. Currently, an employee is eligible to receive 90 percent of his or her workers’ compensation if alcohol or drugs contribute to injury or death on the job. Under the legislation introduced Tuesday, the benefits would decrease by 35 percent to 85 percent.
