Workers’ comp partner or program? It’s in your control.

Featured Worker’s CompWorkers’ Comp 

Many business leaders we’ve recently spoken with have expressed frustration with the Washington workers’ compensation system. The sources of this frustration most often come down to an inability to understand and control this key and costly area of their business, difficulty working with the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), and a lack of effective partnership or support.

Our passion at Vigilant is to fill these gaps and help Washington companies take control of their workers’ compensation costs. Here’s how:

Informed business decisions
We want to equip you to make informed workers’ compensation decisions just as you do in other areas of your business. We won’t just tell you what to do, we’ll educate you to know what your options are, why you’re doing what you’re doing, and how it will affect your future premiums. We help you take control and make decisions that are in the best interest of your company and employees.

We tie everything back to how your decisions will affect your future premiums in real dollars, so that you can see the whole picture. 

Advocacy with L&I
Assertive advocacy with L&I is imperative to effectively manage your workers’ compensation costs. It’s not enough to know what needs to happen, you also need to know how to make it happen in a system that can be hard to navigate. We do that for our Retro members.

Passive claims management leads to bad, out of control and costly claims results, which in turn drives your premiums higher. Our Vigilant team knows who to contact at L&I, and how to meaningfully affect positive outcomes for the companies we serve. We drive the process with your input and on your behalf.

Partnership for the long-haul
We are a partner, not just a third-party administrator (TPA) or retro sponsor. We want to develop a relationship with your company to help you take control of your workers’ compensation costs sustainably, for the long-term. 

This is why we dedicate to you a Vigilant claims manager, safety professional and Vigilant Law Group employment attorney. The people advocating for you know you and your company, and work together on strategies and solutions specific to your business.

It’s also why we’ve invested so much in building unique depth of knowledge of the WA workers’ compensation system. Not so we can be smart, but to simplify it for you, and help you take control.

My team and I welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can partner with you. Learn more about our workers’ comp services or reach out to Bryon Bailey at 503-620-1710 for a complimentary claims review.
