False workers’ comp claims lead to more than $40,000 overpayment

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -Anita Maxwell, 55, surrendered herself to the Superior Court of California, Division 30 in Los Angeles County yesterday on 14 felony counts associated with insurance fraud. A California Department of Insurance investigation revealed that Maxwell, featured in season four of the reality series “Bridezillas”, allegedly submitted fraudulent documents and made false claims to receive more than $40,000 in undeserved workers’ compensation benefits.
