U.S. WORKERS' COMPENSATION


Even though workers' compensation claims frequency has declined every year for more than a decade, workers' compensation costs have continued to rise. Twenty years ago, the National Council on Compensation Insurance reported that workers' compensation indemnity losses represented more than half of total losses. For 2006, however, it was workers' compensation medical losses that represented more than half of all total losses—59 percent—and workers' compensation consumed 70 cents of every primary casualty dollar paid by employers.

Our Workers' Compensation ExpertiseMarsh's U.S. Workers' Compensation Practice serves client needs in relation to workers' compensation in all privatized U.S. states, the District of Columbia and under various federal laws.

The practice is focused on various current and emerging issues in the workers' compensation industry. Central to our goal is keeping our clients and colleagues abreast of jurisdictional legislation change and reform impact. The practice interprets what reform changes mean to employers and, where possible, what can be done to optimize cost-saving benefits on a state-by-state basis.
