Have A Life

I realize that any bozo with web access can spout off on any topic as long as there is someone to read it. On second thought, you don't need anyone to read it, although it helps. In the coming weeks and months, I plan on spouting off on all things relating to Workers' Comp. Oohh Boy! That's an exciting topic. Why the banana split? Why not!

The Man behind the Man

I'm not sure why I feel the need to show my face, but...I feel the need!
This may be the result of some deep seeded need or desire to be the center of attention, but really, I just hope it helps me sell the video.

State of The Industry

As we creep past the 3 year anniversary of the passage of SB899, it is time to reflect on what has been gained, lost and is yet to come.

GAINS: Across the board, employers, especially self-insured employers have seen substantial reductions in the cost of Workers' Compensation. Cost are down anywhere from 10 to 20% across the board. In addition the number and frequency of claims reported are down significantly. There is a general sense in the industry that a corner has been turned and the employer has the upper hand.

LOSSES: Although there are fewer claims, severity seems to have increased over the past 3 years. Applicant attorneys are squeezing every drop of PD and medical treatment out of the claims that do exist. The issues of apportionment and the appropriate PD schedule to use are being hotly contested.

THE FUTURE: Where do we go from here? There are a variety of legislative and court challenges pending that may adversely affect the positive gains that employers have seen recently.

Stay tuned for more info in the coming days.
