After reviewing rates, the Department of Insurance has once again found that Workers' Comp insurers are:
1) Making higher profits;
2) Not lowering rates for employers.
Instead of a simple acknowledgment of these simple facts, the insurance industry responded with their same old song:
It goes like this...
"But. It may be a shame.
"But. We are never to blame."
They always have a "but." This time it's... "But according to us, Cumulative Trauma claims are up."
Here's the Department of Industrial Relations answer to their latest "But"...
The Department of Industrial Relations keeps track of claims. They report that Cumulative Trauma claims are down 37%.
Two Departments. One Conclusion.
