Topic Overview:

This interactive discussion and problem-solving workshop focuses on the basics of workers’ compensation systems, and why 15%-20% of claims produce 80%-85% of the costs.  Using real-life case scenarios, participants will gain a better understanding of the subtleties of managing a workers’ compensation injury/illness and the subsequent claims, and will examine the fundamental language of the workers' compensation law common to all 50 states. Other points of discussion will include strategies to control costs while getting workers back to a productive, functional work life as quickly as possible, and what criteria to use when selecting, referring or suggesting qualified medical providers. Following a variety of cases from onset to resolution, from both simple illustrations to more “creeping catastrophic” cases, will enable attendees to gain a better perspective on this 100-year-old system known as workers’ compensation.


  1. Describe the meaning of state law terminologies from a legal perspective.
  2. Identify key triggers that can create a catastrophic claim.
  1. Explain role of standard criteria and medical provider skill sets to resolve medical legal claims aspects.
