You ask if "incorporating would resolve some of the issues/dangers that companies face by hiring me as an independent contractor. Essentially fear of the IRS determining that I am an employee rather than an independent."

It may not resolve the issues but it helps. If you incorporate you are then an employee of the corporation and the client contracts with the corporation to use it's employees.

All that said however, the IRS still looks at the relationship between the client and you. Read http://www.irs.gov/prod/forms_pubs/pubs/p15a04.htm
for the scoop.
