Congratulations to Workers Comp Insider
by Michael Fox
For being named "best of the web" for safety and loss control services by Business Insurance magazine. Perhaps its for such interesting postings as this story on California workers compensation judges filing their own claims for workers compensation. Here's the money quote:
Workers comp judges in [California] are six times more likely to file claims than judges in other state departments. And in a number of these cases, the judges hired the same attorneys – and used the same doctors -- who appear regularly in their courts. In addition, the claims are ultimately heard before their colleagues on the bench!
I don't profess to know anything about California workers compensation law, but unless there are some pretty dilapidated buildings in which workers compensation justice is being dispensed in the Governator's state, I would guess a lot of those are "stress" related claims. Hmmm.
