Top 25 Workers Comp Blog and AM Best Recommended Provider Awards


Picked As Top 25 Workers Comp Blog – J&L Risk Management Awarded Twice This Week

J&L was awarded A Top 25 Workers Comp Blog and named as a recommended Provider by AM Best this week.   Well, the AM Best award was actually in March and the Top 25 blog was earlier this month.  I am running a little behind in my mention of awards.

The blog turned 10 years old this year.  The company actually celebrated our 22nd year consulting on Workers Compensation.

We at J&L and specifically myself want to thank Workerscompensation.com; the good souls that nominated us, and to the committee for ranking us 5th.  My blog elves and I have worked over 5,000 hours on the articles.   We even had to start with the 2007 articles and gussy them up a little over the last year.   Google likes  “the gussying.”

Awards sound great.  We had been picked as a Top 25 Workers Comp Blog in the past.

I just wanted to provide a great repository of articles that have an evergreen quality  or articles that stand the test of time.   You will see them being posted in LinkedIn and Twitter a few times each week.  The more we all share our Workers Comp and insurance knowledge, the more we can make WC a better place to work.

We were the first one to blog conference live and not just write articles each night.   I actually had to ice my wrists down each night from live blogging the WCRI Conference two months ago.

OK, so enough of this fluff, pomp, and circumstance, let us dig into another technical area of Workers Comp.   As always, if you have a question or want me to write about a certain subject, use the Contact Us page to send any suggestions.

By the way, many thanks to anyone that nominated us as a Top 25 Workers Comp Blog.

  1. James,

    Congrats! But I thought you did not care what that blowhard thought of you? I don’t think I was even nominated.

  2. Richard, Thanks for the comment. Actually, there was a panel of 7 people that scored the nominated blogs/companies. The seven were from different parts of the WC landscape. The article was mainly written to thank whomever nominated our blog.
