Price: $24.95


The advancing average age of the workforce will likely result in more frequent — and more costly — injuries. To avoid unnecessary expenses and wasted time, workers’ comp decision makers must understand what qualifies as a legitimate claim.

This easy-to-read pamphlet explores recent workers’ comp cases — giving you insights into what constitutes a compensable workplace injury in many states and guidance on how to handle your own claims. From preexisting conditions and workplace violence, to travel and off-premises injuries, The Compensability Decision provides guidelines, rules and examples to help you determine the criteria for a compensable injury.

You gain practical strategies on how to:

  • Determine whether a workplace injury or illness is compensable under workers’ comp laws
  • Determine if there’s a causal relationship between the injury and employment
  • Prove whether workers’ comp benefits are warranted for an injury or illness
  • Evaluate how different states decide compensability
  • And more!
