Workers Compensation Claim Frequency Continues to Decline in 2009 (PDF)
In a new research brief, NCCI reports that the decline in claim frequency for workers compensation injuries continued in 2009, and economic factors suggest further reductions are likely in 2010.
Preliminary results indicate a decline in claim frequency of 4.0% for 2009. This is on the heels of a 3.4% drop in 2008 and extends a downward trend that started in 1991.
Note, however, that NCCI's latest data reveals that, while claim frequency is down, indemnity and medical severities continue to rise, somewhat offsetting the good news.
Key findings in this year's analysis are listed below:
