Deconstructing workers’ comp
While some employee fraud does taint the system, the real problems are skyrocketing medical costs, unregulated insurance rates and, in some cases, employer fraud.
As politically attractive as it may be, don’t pick on the workers and their attorneys. Look to the insurance companies, medical providers and unscrupulous employers. Such important and complex legislation should not be made at the ballot box, where the governor’s stamp of approval and 10-second sound bites targeting attorneys will most likely trump logic and sound arguments against a flawed plan.
