Based on more than 15 years of research on workers' compensation claims costs, Workers' Compensation Claims Management provides the methodology necessary to correctly measure, compare, and predict claims costs for dynamic cohorts.

It provides the tools needed to deal with the complexity of controlling workers' compensation costs. Data examples are included for readers to practice the methods explained in the book.
