Paralysis by Analysis



Liberty Mutual just published their 2016 Workplace Safety Index. They identify the critical risk areas in serious, non-fatal injuries. Their list of top injury causes includes:


  • Over-exertion;
  • Falls;
  • Struck by object;
  • Roadway incidents;
  • Repetitive motion.


Liberty Mutual develops this list by making an exhaustive search of labor statistics, claims filings and other public insurance records. At OMCA, we have our own list of critical post-injury risk areas that drive your cost curve:


  • Ineffective Utilization Review;
  • Narcotic abuse;
  • Polypharmacy;
  • Unwillingness to challenge physicians;
  • Inappropriate treatment plans.


Although my list is not developed by computer analytics, it is nonetheless accurate.


Every day we remediate complex and catastrophic claims situations. Applying the best medical science with peer-to-peer physician intervention works. Don’t just be a dollar statistic on next year’s Liberty Mutual list.
Call us. We can do better.
