Workers’ Comp Ads on TV

The battle over changes to the state’s workers’ compensation system is hitting the airwaves. The Dan Davis law firm has commercials on featuring a person with an amputated leg saying his family would not have made it without workers’ comp.
Legislation that would eliminate a court-based system in favor of an administrative program passed the Senate this week and is now headed to the House.
Compensation amounts for specific injuries have been reduced, the main point made in the new TV commercial. House Speaker T.W. Shannon is shepherding the legislation through his chamber and says changes are likely. Whether that will include altering the amount employees injured on the job receive isn’t known.
I’m keeping a close eye on this bill and will be reporting on it regularly on KGOU.
