    The Gates of Hell Pt. I - Dante's Florence

    This is a special series, and a bit of a change from our usual workers' compensation programming. Historian of Italian art and owner of Tuscan Tour Guide,  Paul Costa, takes us on a trip to the dark ages, to get a glimpse of what life was like in late 13th century Florence and surrounding cities. Paul illustrates the factors that imposed upon the daily life of the common people during this time. We examine the conditions that set the stage in the mind of one Dante Alighieri, who would go on to create one of the most significant literary works in history: The inferno. But why Dante? What does this have to do with workers' compensation? We will arrive at the answer at the end of our series. To get there, we must go through Inferno itself. See you in hell.

Great info! About time! John A knows what he is talking about.

It’s hard to find good information on Work Comp and I have 5 years of experience in this field. I have been a patient and worked within the field myself. Unless you have a good WC attorney (hard to find) you really are in a land of unknowns. It’s easy to just listen to your adjuster and insurance ,which typically are not on your side. Even doctors seem to be very clueless in this field. Glad to see that RateFast is so innovative in what they do!
