Kudos to Ruth L. Chimenti et al. and MPPA editor Ralph Manchester for their excellent and complementary contributions to the literature regarding performing arts and worker's compensation (WC). Chimenti et al. addressed the issue of why WC is underutilized by professional orchestral musicians. They conducted a survey whose n = 261, with 243 musicians reporting injuries. The survey posits 7 possible reasons for not filing WC claims, plus the option of providing an "other" response. The authors did a good job choosing possible reasons, since all 7 received significant responses. I would offer one "other" reason WC claims are not filed. Such claims are often denied and often taken to court. [Reply is attached.].
