As pointed out often in these articles, California seems to be on the cutting edge quite often for any workers comp developments.   What happens in CA may soon be coming to your state.  

The trends that occur in CA seems to flow out into other states’  WC systems.  That is why I try to point out any significant developments that occur in CA..   

Sitting behind a desk and thinking that your Workers Comp related job will always be the same is just not going to work in today’s insurance and legal environment.
