Bonds Speaks on Defending High Exposure Workers’ Comp Claims


On March 11th, Bruce Bonds (Urbana) presented at the 8th Annual Illinois Workers' Comp Forum. Bruce spoke on "Proven Tactics for Successfully Defending High Exposure Workers' Compensation Claims and Keeping Them from Spiraling Out of Control." Specifically, his presentation covered:  

  • How to identify potentially high exposure claims.
  • How to use investigation, surveillance, intensive review of prior medical records, job restrictions and social media searches to successfully defend high exposure claims.
  • How to avoid unnecessary PTD awards.
  • How to motivate injured employees to be productive back at work.

This was Bruce's second time presenting at the Forum, which was attended by workers' compensation professionals from across Illinois.
