Best Practices to Avoid Common Workers' Compensation Mistakes

To remain profitable and successful, employers must be vigilant in appropriately handling and responding to workers' compensation litigation.

One of the most difficult challenges facing employers today is the management of sky-rocketing workers' compensation costs. While avoidance of litigation is always the goal, it is not always possible. When litigation ensues, steps can be taken to avoid common workers' compensation litigation mistakes to help contain and mitigate costs. This topic will benefit those involved in the claims handling process by identifying these common mistakes, as well as the solutions to remedy them. You will also benefit from learning best practices in risk management to avoid mistakes in the first place. When the employer, insurance claims adjuster and defense attorney align toward the goal of reducing workers' compensation litigation costs, a company is well-positioned for future growth and success.
