Preventing a Workers’ Comp Claim from Litigating

Friday, July 7, 2017

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (English)
*Spanish seminar available upon request.


There is a lot of concern about litigated workers’ comp claims, and for good reason. We know that there are companies in every industry whose employees litigate just about every claim, or so it would seem. Yet, surprisingly, there are companies in every industry that may have one litigated claim over the course of several years. The question is why? Is there anything we can learn to help us reduce our litigation rate?


Please join us as we explore this question, along with why employees seek out an attorney; what can companies can do to deter their claim from being litigated, and more.


Presented By:

5001 California Avenue, Suite 150
Bakersfield, CA 93309

  • Why do some employees seek out an attorney?

  • Is it true that employees litigate because they want easy money? Is it all about the dollar?
  • What is the role some supervisors unknowingly play in motivating their employees to litigate their workers’ comp claims?
  • What are some characteristics common to companies that have problems with high workers’ comp claim litigation rates?
  • How do the doctors and their staff play into your workers’ comp claims being litigated?
