LOS ANGELES COUNTY - Michael D. Antonovich announced that the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved three grants from the California Department of Insurance in the amount of $17.2 million to automobile insurance and worker's compensation fraud.

Two grants totaling $12 million will focus on auto insurance fraud rings, syndicates, gangs and other organizations in the county. Perpetrators also include unscrupulous doctors, chiropractors, lawyers and others who profit from fraudulent automobile insurance claims.

A $5.3 million grant for the District Attorney's Worker's Compensation Fraud Program will combat fraudulent claims that cost taxpayers millions of dollars annually and have led to thousands of jobs being lost due to local business closures precipitated by escalating workers' compensation costs caused by fraud.
