Work Comp Claims

Claim frequency is a huge issue in California Workers' Comp insurance. The latest reports show that LA is higher than the state average while the Bay Area regions have lower frequencies of claims. Supposedly the study takes wage level differences and industrial differences into account for the comparison. The highest claim severities are found in the Central Valley and urban coastal areas and much lower if more rural parts of California.

The Study examines geographical differences in:

  • Indemnity frequency
  • Total frequency
  • Incurred indemnity on indemnity claims
  • Median injured workers’ average weekly wages
  • Incurred medical on indemnity claims
  • Cumulative injury and occupation disease claims
