Downers Grove, IL – Coventry recently announced the release of a new white paper entitled “Careful Planning Can Blunt Nature’s Impact on Workers’ Compensation.”
In just the past few years, natural disasters have generated startling headlines and produced enormous challenges for many, including for workers’ compensation systems.
In 2017, colossal hurricanes lashed the coasts of Florida, Puerto Rico, and Texas before scraping across enormous inland areas. The following year, in fall 2018, the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century swept across Northern California, leveling an area the size of Chicago. And in 2019, a patchwork of Midwestern levies has strained and sometimes failed to hold back rivers swollen by snowmelt and copious rain. If the assaults seem more intense these days, that’s because they often are.
The disruptions wrought by flood and flame, as well as other calamities, offer warnings for how far-reaching the consequences of disasters can be for injured workers and those who care for them. These events underscore the need for proper disaster recovery planning in workers’ compensation, which can be overlooked given its small size compared with group health.
