Workers’ Compensation (WC) insurance is an important tool for protecting employees and employers in today’s workforce. Many myths have evolved that add to the confusion and further complicate this government-regulated system for work-related illness and injuries. Targets for this myth-slaying crusade include Independent Contractor vs. Employee determination, factors that influence an Experience Modification Factor, identifying when a client needs Employers Liability, Stop Gap, USL&H, or Jones Act Coverage; application of benefits under Other State Coverages, including protection for Volunteers, Waiver of Subrogation issues, plus dilemmas that arise when officers or others elect out of WC coverage.


During his extensive insurance career that began in 1969 with USF&G Insurance Company, Patrick Deem has served as a Commercial Underwriter, Underwriting Manager, Sales Manager, Excess and Surplus Lines Underwriter, and an Independent Insurance Agent. Patrick is the founder of Risk Management and Insurance Education Services that provides insurance consulting, training, expert witnesses, and litigation support services to insurance companies, agents and insureds.
