No two states share the same workers’ compensation law. Such diversity is a challenge to insurance carriers and employers alike. Lawmakers and regulators must balance stakeholder interests. States act as laboratories experimenting with new cost containment strategies in an attempt to protect employers and their injured workers. Employers demand quality medical care so their employees can return to work as soon as possible. Employees seek adequate income replacement and medical benefits. Insurance carriers seek predictability and lower costs. Jurisdictional diversity and competing interests require advice from legal counsel intimately familiar with the individual jurisdiction.
