Ideas on How to Reform Workers’ Compensation

Ideas on How to Reform Workers’ Compensation

January 24th, 2017 by

Recently, one of our fellow members in Florida’s Workers’ Advocates (FWA) an advocacy group of workers’ compensation claimant attorneys which fights for the rights of all injured workers in Florida, wrote a guest column for Florida Politics providing some ideas on how to reform the workers' compensation law. The ideas center around balancing the interests of injured workers and employers to create a fair policy that will work for both parties.

Some of the ideas include: Creating a competition based system for setting workers' compensation insurance rates, allowing some direction of control by the injured worker in their medical care,  and ensuring that the injured worker has proper access to courts to fight for benefits that have been wrongfully denied.
