For the last several years, the Workers' Compensation insurance market has been walking something of a tightrope — it's profitable and popular among US insurance companies, despite steadily decreasing rates and premiums. That fact has led insurance leaders to flash warning signs about the future of the Workers' Compensation market, especially as economic headwinds have started to add up.
