WORKERS' COMPENSATION


Even though workers' compensation claims frequency has declined every year for more than a decade, workers' compensation costs have continued to rise.

Marsh's National Workers' Compensation Practice serves client needs in relation to workers' compensation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and under various federal laws. The practice is also able to provide information on Canadian workers' compensation, via our Canadian operations, which encompass Marsh North America.

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.

Marsh also has established two teams of colleagues who serve as workers' compensation resource experts for all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and territories outside of the United States. Each group is able to answer workers' compensation-related questions, including claims issues.

With the Workers' Compensation Expeditors' team, Marsh has a contact for each state that is able to assist with the client's claims history and its overall influence on their renewal. They are able to help with classification and rating questions. Our second team provides a designated jurisdictional expert for workers' compensation claims for each state who provide information and support on various claims issues. Familiar with state specific labor codes and case law, the jurisdictional expert can identify the effect of a specific claim.

Working together with our workers' compensation expeditor and jurisdictional experts, Marsh's National Workers' Compensation Practice is able to provide assistance with workers' compensation legislation, placement, rules and regulations, and claims issues specific to each location of the client's business.

Marsh's National Workers' Compensation Practice, in conjunction with client advisory and Marsh Risk Consulting colleagues, brings solutions to clients in all market segments and industries that will reduce the frequency and severity of workers' compensation claims and ultimately reduce the cost of losses and expedite injured workers return to the labor force.

The need to aggressively confront the workers' compensation challenges before us continues to gain social, economical and political attention. Marsh's National Workers' Compensation Practice takes a comprehensive, consultative approach to risk management, working as trusted advisors to our clients and colleagues to help drive down our clients' workers' compensation cost — and drive up their profitability. Our team delivers a broad array of risk consulting and claims management services designed to help the client. Our proprietary data and knowledge, along with our new tools and technology touched on above, enable the Workers' Compensation Practice to bring effective total cost of risk solutions to our clients.
