California businesses could see higher workers’ comp premiums

When it comes to workers’ compensation, companies are required to carry it in order to protect employees in case they are injured. However, workers’ comp does not typically pay for the entire cost of the worker’s damages. In San Francisco, some business owners worry about the cost of workers’ compensation, so many pay attention to industry recommendations.

Due to an increase in the cost of medical care and an abundance of claims, some predict that there could be a significant increase in workers’ compensation premiums. While some businesses remain optimistic and believe that legislation will reduce the severity of rate increases, many worry that workers’ comp premiums will continue to rise, having already gone up 35 percent from 2009 rates.

One advisory group that the workers’ comp industry supports has recommended a 6.9 percent increase in premiums, which would begin next year. Additionally, other insiders think there could actually be even more of an increase. The insurance commissioner will decide whether or not these recommendations are acceptable, and while insurance companies do not have to abide by what the commissioner recommends, many do. With regard to the most costly states for workers’ compensation, California ranks in the top three.

If an employee is injured on the job, workers’ compensation is often one of the first things that will be taken into consideration. If you own a business and want to protect yourself and your workers from the damage that a workplace injury can cause, it is important to have excellent coverage. If you want to find out more about workers’ comp, talking with an experienced legal professional could be helpful.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
