Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features a new Guest Post from Colleen F. Slyngstad, Head of Customer Experience at CLARA analytics that examines the issue of attorney involvement in workers’ compensation.
Colleen notes that CLARA is out with a new study that demonstrates just how much costs have increased based on attorney involvement since the last major impact study was conducted ten years ago, and also examines costs related to non-financial factors like lost time. Key findings included that the mean cost of claims in which attorneys were involved increased by 388%, while the median values were 739% higher. Claims that involved lawyers took 195% times longer to resolve, and injured workers who engaged attorneys missed 284% more days of work.
