As many of you know, a broad-based conference was recently held in Dallas by invitation only to
discuss common national issues in workers’ compensation in light of a perceived trend to “opt-out”
plans and the specter of nationalization or doing away with a workers’ compensation system altogether. SLS partner Jane Stone was invited to the Summit as a representative of the National
Workers’ Compensation Defense Network. You may have been following the progress of the
Summit on Bob Wilson’s website. The purpose was to open a dialogue as to what is right in
worker’s compensation programs, and what can be improved. The discussions were lively to say
the least, given that the attendees were so diverse in their views and experiences. The conversations
lasted for 2 days among regulators, judges, insurance professionals, physicians, academics, union
representatives, lawyers (from all sides), and injured workers (both satisfied with the system and
unhappy with it). After the initial conference, the attendees responded to a survey to determine the
priority of topics that were most important. The results of the survey will be published sometime
after July 4th.
