I am representing a client who the insurance company is stonewalling. I can′t seem to get it to negotiate a settlement. If I file a complaint with the Fraud and Noncompliance Unit and the matter is then resolved, can I withdraw my complaint?

No. The Fraud and Noncompliance Unit was created to investigate criminal violations of Missouri′s workers′ compensation law (RSMo 287). If a complaint is filed, the unit will investigate the matter to determine if a criminal violation has occurred. If the unit is able to substantiate a violation, the Division Director may refer it to the Office of the Attorney General for prosecution. If no violation is substantiated the case is administratively closed. The unit was not intended to nor does it participate in the administrative settlement side of the workers′ compensation system.
