How to tell if your workers’ compensation claim is being handled incorrectly

Even with the assurance of a third-party administrator that your workers’ compensation claims are being managed well, something could still go wrong. Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Your workers’ compensation premiums have been increasing annually even if premiums from other companies within the industry are not;
  • Your overall cost of workers’ compensation claims have been increasing faster annually as a percentage than the percentage rise in the cost of medical care;
  • The indemnity portion of your claims cost as a percentage of the total claim cost has been rising gradually;
  • There have been some inconsistencies with your workers’ compensation claims;
  • You encounter missed subrogation recoveries;
  • You experience a series of shuffling of adjusters in and out of your claims program
