WCIRB Study Shows L.A. Claims Skew Statewide Data

A new study released last week by the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) finds that L.A.-area claims exceed the statewide average by more than 30 percent and run more than 50 percent higher than those in the San Francisco Bay Area. The study also found that that claim severities tend to be higher in the Central Valley and many of the urban coastal areas, but lower in the more remote, rural areas of the state.  Read the full WCIRB Study of Geographical Differences in California Workers’ Compensation Claim Costs here.
