Workers’ Comp Rates Climbing, but More Rate Needed

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.—While insurers continue to achieve rate increases in workers’ compensation, experts say it is not yet enough to make up for rising costs and low investment income.

In the second half of 2012, those increases are moderating a bit in some lines of business. But others, like workers’ compensation, are still in need of significant rate, and increases are not moderating.”
