Workers' comp system out of control

Published: March 23, 2013

“Award raises political questions” (News, March 17) confirms that our workers' compensation system is being abused and is out of control. I can't fathom using taxpayer dollars to award Jerry Carroll $15,100 for his gopher hole incident. I don't fault Carroll; he's like anyone who'll take what he can if fools will give it to him. I place the heavy blame on the shoulders of our “wonderful” out-of-control judicial system. We need leadership to fix these types of issues.
