How to Handle a Worker's Comp Insurance Claim Part One

Written by on 1/1/2018 3:18 AM in , , , , . It has 3 Comments.

Worker's comp insurance claims are inevitable. Negative outcomes are not. When the proper steps are taken from the onset of the claim through resolution, your team can ensure positive results that support everyone’s best interests.

Not a Hassle
When a worker's comp insurance claim begins, it’s critical not to treat the injured employee as an obstacle. If your head machinist clocks-in, but then suffers injury from a small metal shaving that slices into the fingers of his right hand, how will you respond?

A Human Being
Let’s say you, the supervisor, treat him as a valued colleague and report the accident. Your machinist thinks it’s a scratch, but you consider the potential of serious injury. While he removes his gloves and washes his hand, you call your workplace health and safety (HSE) executive, who dispatches an adjuster to the job site while you bandage the worker.

A Deeper Understanding
The adjuster arrives, discussing the incident with the machinist. The adjuster’s experience compels him to ask the machinist to straighten the fingers affected by the thin, deep cut. When he cannot, the adjuster calls a hand specialist, describing the range-of-motion limitations, and the machinist is transported to the clinic.

A Helping Hand
Along the way, the two have a Q&A on what will commence and why the specialist was called. The drug screening company is called to meet them. The injured employee and adjuster fill out the necessary paperwork, including the medical authorization form from the injured employee.

What does all this personal attention net the employer? Find out in ‘How to Handle a Worker's Comp Insurance Claim Part 2’ from Minnesota Comp Advisor.

    I like how you said that it's critical not to treat the injured employee as an obstacle. I am looking into hiring a lawyer for a worker's compensation case. Thanks for the tips on how to handle this situation.
